Reliability engineering deals with the estimation, prevention and management of high levels of engineering uncertainty and risks of failure to guarantee the maximum uptime for your applications.
Site Reliability Engineering and DevOps share the same foundational principles. SRE is viewed by many (as cited in the Google SRE book) as a “specific implementation of DevOps”. The objectives of reliability engineering are:
To apply engineering knowledge and specialist techniques to prevent or to reduce the likelihood or frequency of failures.
To identify and correct the causes of failures that do occur despite the efforts to prevent them.
To determine ways of coping with failures that do occur, if their causes have not been corrected.
To apply methods for estimating the likely reliability of new designs, and for analysing reliability data.
Our team at Newesis embrace the methodology and practices of Reliability Engineering to help you apply them in the context of your business solutions.
