#188: Just because you’ve run some chaos experiments against your system doesn’t mean you are ready to fend off wide ranging and prolonged attacks. It just means that you might be ready for the attacks you’ve created experiments for. Why? Because you probably didn’t actually fully load your systems with persistent and ever-changing attacks.
In this episode, we talk with Benjamin Wilms, CEO of Steadybit, about why just running chaos experiments is just one part of helping make your systems resilient and why capturing what happens in real-life incidents can help you create even better experiments.
Benjamin is the co-founder and CEO of Steadybit. He calls himself a product-minded engineer with 20 years of experience. Benjamin spreads his enthusiasm and new knowledge as a speaker and author - especially in reliability, chaos, and resilience engineering. One thing he does to relax his mind is to push his body while shredding MTB trails.
