If you want to read and know about SRE. We recommend you to visit our SRE: Site Reliability Engineering blog. Let’s today we discuss some aspects that set the site reliability engineer role apart from other roles.
When software complies with all of the requirements such as uncaught exceptions, networking problems, hardware degradation, high or low usage of resources, or slow responses from services SRE always needs to be prepared. They are ready to act as well.
What makes it apart from other roles?
Firstly, to ensure System availability, Site reliability engineers collaborate and communicate with other engineers. This is done through (SLIs) which stands service level indicators and (SLOs) which stands for service level objectives.
Secondly, Site Reliability Engineering believes in reducing toil which means work extremely hard or incessantly. It uses to aim at automating tasks and activities. Here a human operator manually works on a system.
For example, Google expects that 50% of each site reliability engineer’s time goes to coding and the other 50% of its goes for the feeding and daily care of existing applications.
Thirdly, to measure risk SRE introduces error budgets that consequently help to balance availability and feature development.
If you are having an error budget, that means that failure is accepted as normal and that requiring 100 percent availability is not necessary.
There are no unrealistic reliability targets set; a group or team has the flexibility to deliver updates and improvements to a system.
Fourthly, Site Reliability Engineer must have to keep services up and running again as quickly as possible. There is must avoid any subsequent failure for as long as possible.
Fifthly, SRE helps to reduce the cost of failure. Site reliability engineers maintain the task of ensuring the early discovery of problems.
Last, of all, we know solving the problems and conflict between teams and groups is also the SREs goal.
