This course will provide you with an introduction to the principles & practices that enable enterprises to reliably and economically scale critical services. Adopting SRE into your own organization requires re-alignment, with a new focus on engineering & automation, and the adoption of a range of new working paradigms.

The SRE course consists of eight courses, each focusing on a particular aspect of SRE. By completing this course you will learn not only about what makes SRE such an important discipline when practiced correctly, and how it can improve both the stability and performance of your enterprise applications, but you’ll also prepare yourself to take and pass the SRE Foundation Exam administered by DevOps Institute - should you wish to do so.
