Testing for Resiliency of EC2, RDS, and S3 – AWS Virtual Workshop

It is not sufficient to only design for failure, you must also test failure scenarios to understand how they cause your systems to behave. In this virtual hands-on workshop, we will guide you through the steps to perform basic resiliency testing of a simple, three-tier web application. You will use the AWS Management Console to understand how to view what has been created, and the effect of your testing. You’ll also learn how to use the AWS command line interface to explore failure modes with Bash and Python scripts. The skills learned will help provide you the ability to start a resiliency test repository for chaos engineering.

Learning Objectives:
– Learn how to test EC2, RDS, and S3 for resiliency

– Learn how to think about how a failure will impact your infrastructure

– Learn how common AWS services can reduce mean time to recovery (MTTR)
