Session Name: Over Nine Billion Dollars of SRE Lessons - The James Webb Space Telescope
With over a decade of work and over 9 billion dollars invested, the James Webb Space Telescope had to launch perfectly and every single point of failure had to pass successfully. This is a deployment any SRE would be proud of! In this session, you will learn many SRE lessons through NASA's experiences in developing and launching exploratory probes. These lessons will range from redundant development of multiple components to repairable components (both repairable monoliths and repairable orchestration platforms) culminating in techniques for developing reliable components and services.
