Chaos Testing is a practice to intentionally introduce failures in your system to test the resiliency and recovery of your microservices architecture. The Mean Time to Recovery(MTTR) needs to be minimized in the current modern day architectures. Hence it is beneficial to validate different failure scenarios ahead of time and take necessary action items to stabilize the system and make it more resilient.
Netflix OSS is a set of libraries & framework that Netflix open sourced to solve the issues with designing distributed systems at scale. In this blog post, you will understand the issues with the Netflix OSS libraries and why organizations are adapting the Sidecar Design pattern and Service Mesh technologies.
The Istio Data Plane is primarily comprised of the Envoy proxies which are attached as dedicated sidecars to each application instance. Istio Data Plane intercepts all incoming(Ingress) and outgoing(Egress) network traffic. This and gives us the ability to apply all the features at this layer, without polluting the application code.
The Cloud Native Ecosystem is constantly evolving and continues to grow at a fast pace. The usage of Cloud Native Technologies in Production has tremendously increased during the recent past.
Microservices are complex and building a scalable and resilient Microservice architecture is challenging. By using Kubernetes, Envoy and Istio you can reduce the complexity associated with your services.
