Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a software engineering approach to IT operations. SRE teams use software as a tool to manage systems, solve problems, and automate operations tasks. Site reliability refers to a system's capacity to recover from infrastructure or service failures. To satisfy demand, it's critical to acquire computer resources and manage interruptions like configuration errors or intermittent network problems.


SRE uses software engineering to automate IT operations tasks - e.g. production system management, change management, incident response, even emergency response - that would otherwise be performed manually by systems administrators (sysadmins). The principle behind SRE is that using software code to automate oversight of large software systems is a more scalable and sustainable strategy than manual intervention - especially as those systems extend or migrate to the cloud. SRE leverages operations data and software engineering to automate IT operations tasks, and to accelerate software delivery while minimizing IT risk.


SRE can also reduce or remove much of the natural friction between development teams who want to continually release new or updated software into production, and operations teams who don't want to release any type of update or new software without being absolutely sure it won't cause outages or other operations problems. As a result, while not strictly required for DevOps, SRE aligns closely with DevOps principles and can be play an important role in DevOps success. Modern software development requires bridging the increasing demands of Development and Operations without conflict. Site Reliability Engineering is a growing discipline and role that fills in the gaps between Dev and Ops.


SRE Best Practices

1) Ensuring reliability - getting systems back to steady-state as quickly as possible

2) Eliminating toil - automating wherever possible

3) Blameless postmortems - driving better cross-team collaboration

4) Observing what matters - gaining full visibility into system health

5) Being pro-active - living and breathing SLOs to identify and remediate issues before SLAs are violated

6) Architecting for resiliency - Informing architectural design decisions to build more reliable systems

Course Syllabus Back to Top
Certification Back to Top

The Site Reliability Engineer Certification ensures you know planning, production and measurement techniques needed to stand out from the competition.

If you have a passion for development and systems, site reliability engineering might be a good career path for you. SRE, for site reliability engineer or site reliability engineering, is a relatively new position that combines software engineering with IT systems management.

The field of site reliability engineering originated at Google with Ben Treynor Sloss, who founded a site reliability team after joining the company in 2003. In 2016, Google employed more than 1,000 site reliability engineers.

A site reliability engineer (SRE) creates a bridge between development and IT operations by taking on the tasks typically done by operations. Instead, such tasks are given to these types of engineers who use automation tools to solve problems by creating scalable and reliable software systems.

Site reliability engineers typically spend up to 50% of their time dealing with the daily care and feeding of software applications. They spend the rest of their time writing code like any other software developer would.

SRE has become the production support companion for modern application development. While the Network Operations Center (NOC) and SRE primary objectives are to focus on application uptime, the responsibility of supporting applications is much greater.

Uplatz online training guarantees the participants to successfully go through the  JSP (Site Reliability Engineer Certification provided by Uplatz. Uplatz provides appropriate teaching and expertise training to equip the participants for implementing the learnt concepts in an organization.

Course Completion Certificate will be awarded by Uplatz upon successful completion of the Site Reliability Engineer Online course.

Career & Jobs Back to Top

The Site Reliability Engineer Draws an average salary of $122,000 per year depending on their knowledge and hands-on experience.


Who are site reliability engineers and what do they do?

If you have a passion for development and systems, site reliability engineering might be a good career path for you. SRE, for site reliability engineer or site reliability engineering, is a relatively new position that combines software engineering with IT systems management.

As site reliability engineers take part in on-call duties, IT operations, software development, and support, they gain substantial historical knowledge.

Note that salaries are generally higher at large companies rather than small ones. Your salary will also differ based on the market you work in.

A site reliability engineer is a software developer with IT operations experience - someone who knows how to code, and who also understands how to keep the lights on in a large-scale IT environment. Site reliability engineers spend no more than half their time performing manual IT operations and system administration tasks – analyzing logs, performance tuning, applying patches, testing production environments, responding to incidents, conducting postmortems - and spend the rest of their time developing code that automates those tasks. Their goal is to spend much less time on the former and much more time on the latter over time.
