The overwhelming majority of a software system’s lifespan is spent in use, not in design or implementation. So, why does conventional wisdom insist that software engineers focus primarily on the design and development of large-scale computing systems? In this collection of essays and articles, key members of Google’s Site Reliability Team explain how and why their commitment to the entire lifecycle has enabled the company to successfully build, deploy, monitor, and maintain some of the largest software systems in the world. You’ll learn the principles and practices that enable Google engineers to make systems more scalable, reliable, and efficient—lessons directly applicable to your organization. This book is divided into four sections: Introduction—Learn what site reliability engineering is and why it differs from conventional IT industry practices Principles—Examine the patterns, behaviors, and areas of concern that influence the work of a site reliability engineer (SRE) Practices—Understand the theory and practice of an SRE’s day-to-day work: building and operating large distributed computing systems Management—Explore Google's best practices for training, communication, and meetings that your organization can use

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. Evernote, The Home Depot, The New York Times, and other companies outline hard-won experiences of what worked for them and what didn’t. Dive into this workbook and learn how to flesh out your own SRE practice, no matter what size your company is. You’ll learn: How to run reliable services in environments you don’t completely control—like cloud Practical applications 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

Organizations big and small have started to realize just how crucial system and application reliability is to their business. They’ve also learned just how difficult it is to maintain that reliability while iterating at the speed demanded by the marketplace. Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a proven approach to this challenge. SRE is a large and rich topic to discuss. Google led the way with Site Reliability Engineering, the wildly successful O’Reilly book that described Google’s creation of the discipline and the implementation that’s allowed them to operate at a planetary scale. Inspired by that earlier work, this book explores a very different part of the SRE space. The more than two dozen chapters in Seeking SRE bring you into some of the important conversations going on in the SRE world right now. Listen as engineers and other leaders in the field discuss: Different ways of implementing SRE and SRE principles in a wide variety of settings How SRE relates to other approaches such as DevOps Specialties on the cutting edge that will soon be commonplace in SRE Best practices and technologies that make practicing SRE easier The important but rarely explored human side of SRE David N. Blank-Edelman is the book’s curator and editor.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 19th and 20th International Workshop on Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing, JSSPP 2015 and 2016, held respectively in Hyderabad, India, on May 26, 2015 and in Chicago, IL, USA, on May 27, 2016. The 14 revised full papers presented (7 papers in 2015 and 7 papers in 2016) were carefully reviewed and selected from 28 submissions (14 in 2015 and 14 in 2016). The papers cover the following topics: parallel scheduling raising challenges multiple levels of abstractions; node level parallelism; minimization of energy consumption in task migration within a many-core chip; task replication in real-time scheduling context; data-driven approach to schedule GPU load; the use of lock-free data structures in OS scheduler; the influence between user behaviour (think time, more precisely) and parallel scheduling; Evalix, a predictor for job resource consumption; sophisticated and realistic simulation; space-filling curves leading to better scheduling of large-scale computers; discussion of real-life production experiences.

One of the biggest challenges for organizations that have adopted microservice architecture is the lack of architectural, operational, and organizational standardization. After splitting a monolithic application or building a microservice ecosystem from scratch, many engineers are left wondering what’s next. In this practical book, author Susan Fowler presents a set of microservice standards in depth, drawing from her experience standardizing over a thousand microservices at Uber. You’ll learn how to design microservices that are stable, reliable, scalable, fault tolerant, performant, monitored, documented, and prepared for any catastrophe. Explore production-readiness standards, including: Stability and Reliability: develop, deploy, introduce, and deprecate microservices; protect against dependency failures Scalability and Performance: learn essential components for achieving greater microservice efficiency Fault Tolerance and Catastrophe Preparedness: ensure availability by actively pushing microservices to fail in real time Monitoring: learn how to monitor, log, and display key metrics; establish alerting and on-call procedures Documentation and Understanding: mitigate tradeoffs that come with microservice adoption, including organizational sprawl and technical debt
