What you'll learn

Before you adopt SRE you need to be sure that your systems are designed to work well with SRE practices.

Next, you’ll explore how observability design supports SRE and helps you get your apps back online. Finally, you’ll delve into how to effectively measure and report on service levels. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of system design needed to bring your own apps into SRE.
