In 2016, Google’s Site Reliability Engineering book ignited an industry discussion on what it means to run production services today—and why reliability considerations are fundamental to service design. Now, Google engineers who worked on that bestseller introduce The Site Reliability Workbook, a hands-on companion that uses concrete examples to show you how to put SRE principles and practices to work in your environment.
This new workbook not only combines practical examples from Google’s experiences, but also provides case studies from Google’s Cloud Platform customers who underwent this journey. Target, Home Depot, The New York Times, and other companies outline their hard-won experience of what worked for them and what didn’t.
Dive into this workbook and learn how to flesh out your own SRE framework, no matter what size your company is.
- How to run reliable services in environments you don’t completely control—like cloud
- Practical examples of how to create, monitor, and run your services via Service Level Objectives
- How to convert existing ops teams to SRE—including how to dig out of operational overload
- Methods for starting SRE from either greenfield or brownfield
