Solutions for Site Reliability Engineers
Needs of a Site Reliability Engineer
Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a discipline that incorporates aspects of software engineering (development) and applies them to infrastructure and operations problems. The main goals are to create scalable and highly reliable software systems and as such they split their time between operations (on-call duties) and developing systems and software that improve site reliability and performance. One might say, the goal for SRE’s is to “automate their way out a job.
Note: Although there are no hard & fast rules, SRE is typically more core infrastructure and production centric, unlike its DevOps cousin that tends to be more focused on DevTest environments and product delivery.
To address the needs of Site Reliability Engineering there is a need to establish a framework that allows all Site Reliability Engineers to have architectural insight and implement methods to monitor, measure and operationally improve platform and site reliability.
The enov8 platform is an “Enterprise IT Intelligence” solution that sits holistically across your IT landscape (production & test environments) and allows you to model your site, monitor your site, define site operations, automate site operations and capture metrics & trends that support Site Reliability objectives.
