We are excited to announce the General Availability of Azure Chaos Studio, an experimentation platform for improving application resilience with chaos testing by deliberately introducing faults that simulate real-world outages.
Chaos Studio enables users to assess how applications respond to real-world disruptions like network delays, unexpected storage failures, expired secrets, or datacenter outages. Using Chaos Studio, customers can design and conduct experiments with a wide range of agent-based and service-direct faults to better understand how to proactively improve the resilience of their application.
What’s new since preview?
Since we debuted Azure Chaos Studio, we have enabled several new capabilities based on customer feedback, along with new faults and feature improvements over the course of public preview.
Here are a few recent highlights:
Experiment templates let you quickly get up and running with common experiment designs, such as VMSS instance shutdown within Availability Zones and Azure Active Directory outage.
You can use Azure Chaos Studio for running manual Business Continuity and Disaster Relief drills and Game Days, or as part of your CI/CD pipeline to programmatically gate code flow. You can also integrate Azure Chaos Studio with your existing monitoring and observability tools, such as Azure Monitor, Application Insights, or Log Analytics, to visualize experiment impact.
