Chaos and fault injection testing

Break to fix – Inoculate your application with chaos-based fault injection to improve resiliency

Digital and cloud transformation initiatives have given rise to a complex and heterogeneous topology of applications. A significant segment of application design teams are adopting patterns such as service mesh, GraphQL, serverless, and micro frontends. Cloud native platforms with deployments that are on-premise and on the cloud are adding complexity. Standard test coverage and transaction paths cannot feasibly cover all potential flows that, in a negative scenario, can impact application behaviors. Root cause analysis for identified issues also tend to take time given that replication both from a functionality and environment perspective is difficult. Certifying such applications via traditional methods in a CI/CT/CD ecosystem becomes very challenging. To effectively address existing gaps, organizations should leverage fault injection testing to augment traditional non-functional testing.

Virtusa’s chaos and fault injection testing services

Virtusa’s fault injection services leverage significant experience in complex systems and a variety of tools to inject failure hypothesis and experiments to unearth potential issues. Our unique approach lies in the process of service and topology discovery through which we leverage maps to build attack plans for a specific targeted blast radius. We can execute comprehensive attacks at every layer of the application stack. In addition, application level fault injection provides tighter control based on data identifiers or input parameters.

Key benefits

With fault injection testing, your organization will realize at least 20% reduction in operations costs that are due to incidents response and remediation. Cloud operations, digital teams and Kubernetes implementations will benefit significantly by adopting fault injection testing as part of their SDLC.

Reduce the period MTTF (Mean Time to Failure) by 95%

Significantly reduce the duration between system failures and ensure systems are highly available by identifying and fixing issues early in the SDLC.

Partnership with leading industry solution providers and freeware tools

Our partnerships with leading industry solution providers accelerate tools adoption and lead to faster knowledge transfer and team setup.
Virtusa’s banking and financial services domain expertise, coupled with engineering accelerators and extensive digital transformation experience, delivers significant benefits to our clients.

Lower MTTD (Mean Time to Detect)

Shortened time to identify failures and corresponding resolution time by simulating similar scenarios in earlier testing.

Increase fault predictions and identification by 90%

Our experiments are in alignment with industry fault injection methods and ensure prediction of failures so that you avoid any surprises in the production environment.

2X shorter time replicating infrastructure load/ stress scenarios

Target attacks at specific components of the infrastructure faster eg: CPU resource hogs, Kafka latency, database latency.
