Hosting workloads in the cloud can simplify hardware procurement and maintenance, but it doesn’t protect against failures in applications and infrastructure. Many site reliability practices focus on designing highly available architectures, creating resiliency tests, and automating failover for specific components, but these precautions do not replace the need for people and processes to respond effectively during a system failure. In this solution, we discussed the significance of ensuring operational resiliency through gameday execution. We demonstrated how to set up gamedays and how they can supplement your efforts to ensure operational resilience.
Vertical Relevance's Experiment Broker provides the infrastructure to implement automated resiliency experiments via code to achieve standardized resiliency testing at scale. The Experiment broker is a resiliency module that orchestrate experiments with the use of state machines, the input is driven by a code pipeline that kicks off the state machine but also can be executed manually. Coupled with a deep review and design of targeted resiliency tests, it can help ensure your AWS cloud application will meet business requirements in all circumstances.
In this use case learn how a leading payment technology company leveraged a Resiliency Automation Framework to execute test cases to improve the architecture of applications being taken to the cloud. As a result, the customer can now operate at scale with the full knowledge of how their system works in the event of a failure.
The Vertical Relevance Automated Performance Testing Framework lowers the barrier to entry in performance tests by providing a starting point upon which a mature solution can be built to meet the needs of your organization. By following this guidance, you can gain confidence that your production systems are going to meet the current and future demands of your organization and customers
Regular and robust resiliency testing provides assurances your cloud application can weather whatever outages may occur. The Vertical Relevance Resiliency Automation Framework can help guarantee your workload can prevail through disruptions and failures and prevent the damaging consequences of an outage. Reach out to us to learn more about how we can help you meet your resiliency requirements.
For financial services organizations looking to move their applications into AWS, not knowing the true resiliency of those applications, and the infrastructure behind them presents a great risk. Most businesses try to adhere to industry best practices in regards to architecting their AWS environments in a way that is highly available, scalable, and fault-tolerant but there is no avoiding the inevitable failures and disruptions in those environments now and then. With hosting business-critical applications on AWS, businesses need to have a reliable testing strategy framework in place that regularly tests the resiliency of their AWS infrastructure.
