Netflix Abuses Amazon With Monkeys. Now You Can Too
Quote:
To ensure that its massive video-streaming service can withstand the rigors of life on the public internet, Netflix spends an awful lot of time attacking the thing with a monkey. And now, you can sic the same monkey on your own internet services.

On Monday, the company open sourced its “Chaos Monkey,” software that randomly turns off virtual machines running beneath its streaming service, a way of simulating the small outages the service will inevitably face day after day. This means that anyone can use the tool or even modify its source code.

This is just one of many software “monkeys” Netflix has built to test its online service, and eventually, it will open source the entire Simian Army.
