In Flipkart’s cloud environment thousands of developers keep adding new applications/features to the existing tech ecosystem which makes it ever evolving. In system like this how do you find answers for challenges like:
- How do you handle large-scale failures(disasters).
- How does my service impacts our tech ecosystem.
- What all applications a particular application is taking a dependency on.
- Are a set of applications interacting in the way it was designed for.

We built Meeseeks as infrastructures-framework to solve above set of challenges and many more. Meeseeks provide core application graph data of the ecosystem and allows it to be enriched with different domain-specific data to solve for specific use cases like service orchestration in case of Business Continuity, RTO adherence for services, ensure data backups configured for all stateful deployments, impact radius of service outage to name a few.

Moreover, we will be talking about how Meeseeks provides a DAG of services which can help in service orchestration in disaster scenarios. How it provides visualization of the service dependencies and how it evolves over time. And how it can provide a notification/alerting system if an unknown/new set of services start taking a dependency on a particular service.
