Frequently Asked Questions
Site reliability engineering (SRE) applies application development principles to operations and infrastructure processes. It allows organizations to leverage every-as-code practices to create highly reliable and scalable software systems.
Site reliability engineers use the best application development and deployment practices to ensure resilient infrastructure and services. Organizations that have deployed apps and infrastructure on the cloud widely leverage SRE for continuous monitoring for maintaining service uptime.
As software development has moved towards distributed systems, the smallest issue causes cascading problems and impacts user experience. SRE practices in place allow processes and procedures to actively record and resolve incidents and prevent them from happening in the future.
As applications are distributed and multiple deployments can be done throughout the day with DevOps, SRE offers continuous monitoring and observability of applications, resources, and infrastructure up and running. It is built on top of DevOps best practices and focuses on production, business, and end-users.
