SRE Principles and Practices - Level 1

AVG Duration0h


Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a discipline that combines software engineering and systems engineering to build and run large-scale, highly available systems. The principles and practices of SRE are designed to ensure that a company's systems are reliable, efficient, and easy to operate.

One of the key principles of SRE is to treat system reliability as a software problem. This means that SRE teams focus on building automation and monitoring systems to prevent outages and quickly identify and fix any problems that do occur.
