Welcome back, everyone! December inches to its end and many of us are getting ready for food, family, friends, and some holiday fun. Even with our time in 2021 closing quickly, we still have a lot of great content to look at this week from our DevOps on Azure community. For some, it’s crunch time to keep important apps and websites moving along as people turn to online shopping and services for the holidays.

Creating plans for potential failure is important for teams who expect large amounts of traffic and heavy use of their application. Finding ways to solidify your infrastructure takes work, like testing in production using chaos engineering. Chaos engineering is the practice of subjecting applications and services to real-world stresses and failures to build and validate resilience to unreliable conditions and missing dependencies. At Microsoft Ignite we saw the introduction of an Azure-native service for improving application reliability, Azure Chaos Studio (Preview). Test your Azure deployment’s ability to withstand failure by using a number of different faults and actions. You can start using this service by creating an agent-based fault to add CPU pressure to a Linux VM by following this tutorial.
