Across industries, modern operations teams have noted the emergence of a new role: the Site Reliability Engineer (SRE). An SRE is a new IT craftsperson who fuses software engineering and operations best-practices to enable highly reliable software systems. Once the domain of Web-scale businesses only, this discipline is both applicable and important for any organization looking to differentiate itself in a world increasingly defined by software.
n this session, Todd Palino from LinkedIn explores the SRE role from organizational, team and individual perspectives. He’ll describe how by crafting automation and problem solving, a SRE can permeate across a technical organization—not only ensuring a massively high-performant and always-available site, but also informing optimum decision making—assisting with everything from system procurement to application design, builds and deployment.
