Folks,

With the recent addition of Fault Injection Servie to AWS as a service to use, has anyone become aware of similar native tools for use on GFoogle Compute or Microsoft Azure.

Having used FIS in beta and GA status it is extremely useful and combined with CDK this makes it extremently easy to use and store expirements in your repository for future use.

Any ideas on GCP or Aure would be appreciated. 

Kind regards

Niall

Hello Niall,

did you notice the Chaos Platform for Azure by Proofdock, available at the DevOps Marketplace (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=proofdock.chaos-platform)? Maybe this fits your needs.

Cheers,
Bugra

Hello Niall,

I've longed submitted fault injections should be native to the cloud providers. It is fantastic that AWS shows the way with its FIS service.
However, not everything is lost with GCP or Azure.


Obviously, these are somewhat limited examples but it shows they are capable of designing for experimenting failures.

Additionnaly, one should never forget that all the cloud providers expose the API that can serve for injecting turbulence already. It's called "DELETE" :)
You can do so much already with calling directly the native REST API to delete resources. It's the entire ecosystem that has been built with the Chaos Toolkit (https://docs.chaostoolkit.org/.
Sure it's not "Chaos as a service" by the cloud providers, but you can get very far with this approach.

Take care,
- Sylvain Hellegouarch

Microsoft announced their native chaos product, Azure Chaos Studio, last month: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/learn-about-the-latest-innovations-inside-azure-datacenter-architecture/

It's currently in private beta, but I'd expect it to go public beta (if not full-GA) before the end of the year.
