CNCF Receives Chaos Engineering Tool for Kubernetes Apps

MayaData, Cloud Native Computing Foundation | July 01, 2020

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has accepted a Litmus Chaos application testing tool based on chaos engineering principles as a sandbox level project.

Developed by MayaData, the open source software provides IT teams with a chaos engineering tool that runs natively on Kubernetes.

MayaData COO Uma Makkara says Litmus Chaos was originally created to test OpenEBS, an open source project that makes it easier to access container-attached storage. OpenEBS is the foundation for Kubera, a data management platform the company launched last week.

While there are other tools and services based on the chaos engineering principle, Makkara notes Litmus Chaos makes it possible to run those tests on the same Kubernetes cluster where a microservices-based application built using containers runs.
