Gremlin’s Windows Chaos Experiments
From within the Gremlin app, engineers can run chaos experiments on any Windows OS (Server 2008 and later, client Vista and later) in order to build confidence in the reliability of Windows applications and services.

The Windows Agent currently allows users to run Shutdown, CPU, Disk, I/O, Memory, and Blackhole attacks. The remaining attacks are in development, according to the company. 

“For example, you can run a shutdown attack to test your Windows Server Failover clustering and build a robust Active Directory service. Attack your network to ensure SQL Server replication doesn’t lose data. And finally, guarantee reliable communications by attacking your Microsoft Exchange Server,” Gremlin wrote in a blog post.
