Podcast: Learn how SRE Overcomes DevOps Failings

Stephen_Spector

In today’s podcast, we discuss the latest trend in massive scale IT infrastructure management and automation, Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). This new job description comes from Google and describes how they are able to automate the orchestration of their highly complex and decentralized infrastructure.

RackN is a startup focused on delivering the tools necessary for SRE teams to meet the automation, provisioning, and orchestration necessary for Hybrid IT environments. Their solution is based on the open source project, Digital Rebar, a pragmatic solution to real world ops. Rob presented RackN’s perspective on SRE in his blog this past January, The Rise of Site Reliability Engineers (SRE).
