Chaos Monkey 2.0

Netflix has released version 2.0 of "Chaos Monkey", the tool it uses to randomly shut down servers so it can figure out what happens under unexpected circumstances. Or as Netflix puts it, "Chaos Monkey is a resiliency tool that helps applications tolerate random instance failures."

Chaos Monkey was open-sourced in 2012 and now Netflix has released version 2.0, again on GitHub.

New features this time around include better scheduling for machine terminations, the ability to to shut down AWS instances and integration with Netflix's Spinnaker container orchestration platform. ®
