AWS introduces the ‘Fault Injection Simulator’

Published: Tuesday, 30 March 2021 08:49

AWS has announced the availability of the AWS Fault Injection Simulator (FIS). This new service will help organizations perform controlled experiments on AWS workloads by injecting faults and determining the results.

The Fault Injection Simulator will help organizations learn how systems react to various types of faults, enabling a better understanding of failure modes. Experiments can start in pre-production environments and then move to CI/CD workflow and ultimately in the production environment.

Each AWS Fault Injection Simulator (FIS) experiment targets a specific set of AWS resources and performs a set of actions on them. Initially FIS will support for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS).
