Building Mission-Critical Services in the Cloud

What is your background and what sparked your interest in distributed systems?

Building applications on highly available hardware achieve mission-critical systems. We wanted to enable mission-critical systems in the cloud without this kind of special hardware. To achieve these same levels of availability and throughput in the cloud, we are facing distributed systems.

Ana Medina at Reactive Summit: “Resiliency is extremely hard, especially when running anything at scale.”

“In all chaos, there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”
Carl Jung

A Chaos Engineer at Gremlin, Ana helps companies avoid outages by running proactive chaos engineering experiments. At Reactive Summit in Montreal this October, Ana offers a deep-dive into the world of chaos engineering with her talk “The practice of Chaos Engineering”.

In anticipation of Ana’s talk at Reactive Summit, we spoke to Ana about her developer journey, the importance of reliability and how breaking things on purpose can help organizations build more reliable systems.
