Session: How To Run Smarter In Production - Getting Started With Site Reliability Engineering
Site Reliability Engineering and the DevOps movement share a similar set of challenges but addresses each in a different way. SRE got its start at Google in 2003 and according to Ben Treynor, VP of 24/7 Operations: ”SRE is what happens when you ask a software engineer to design an operations team”. In 2016, Google published a book about Site Reliability Engineering principles, practices and organizational constructs.
This talk will highlight key SRE principles and how they map to recognized DevOps focus areas. We’ll also discuss how any organization can adopt SRE, and how our recent experience of working with our customers on implementing SRE practices has shown these principles will work across a range of organizations of different types and sizes.
