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. In 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.
