Tammy Bryant Butow - On failure injection, chaos engineering, extreme sports and being curious - #6
Tammy Bryant Butow is a Principal SRE at Gremlin where she works on Chaos Engineering. In this episode, we discuss how her curiosity led her to the world of infrastructure engineering, an outage from her early days where a core switch took down half the datacenter, her experience running a disaster recovery test and how it taught her about the importance of injecting failures into a system to make it more resilient. We also touch on advanced failure injection techniques, how chaos engineering is evolving and how extreme sports help Tammy keep calm under pressure. Lastly, Tammy has some great advice for teams looking to get started with chaos engineering.
