It can be difficult to appreciate the effort behind maintaining a high availability service. Because of that, people may misunderstand exactly what makes a service reliable.

We live in an era of reliability where users depend on having consistent access to services. When choosing between competing services, no feature is more important to users than reliability. But what does reliability mean? To answer this question, we’ll break down reliability in terms of other metrics within reliability engineering: availability and maintainability. Distinguishing these terms isn’t a matter of semantics.

Site reliability engineering is a multifaceted movement that combines many practices, mentalities, and cultural values. It looks holistically at how an organization can become more resilient, operating on every level from server hardware to team morale. At each level, SRE is applied to improve the reliability of relevant systems. With such wide-reaching impact, it can be helpful to take time to reevaluate how to improve the reliability of a system.

SLOs are key pillars in organizations’ reliability journeys. But, once you’ve set your SLOs, you need to know what to do with them. If they’re only metrics that you’re paged for once in a blue moon, they’ll become obsolete. To make sure your SLOs stay relevant, determine error budgets and policies for your teams. In this blog, we’ll look at the basics of error budgeting, how to set corresponding policies, and how to operationalize SLOs for the long term.
