42 Lines Site Reliability Engineering

In October I had my first foray into webinars. The consulting company I work with, 42 Lines, Inc., gave me the opportunity to help put together some marketing material. We’ve been providing services that we call “DevOps Consulting” for a long time. However, I wanted to push forward with the idea that what we’ve been doing may be best described today with the Site Reliability Engineering terminology. Its true. I’ve believed in monitoring (now Observability) first, setting measurable goals, using these tools for automation, and encouraging continual improvement from data for many years. Its amazing to see these practices become formalized.

If your business could benefit from having an Observability subject matter expert on hand, or in starting your own SRE journey, please contact me.

This talk was recorded on October 7th, 2020. It is a joint webinar with AWS and This has some great points about what Operations looks like today and in the future, event if your company does not subscribe to the SRE model. (AWS does not.) However, those same SRE activities must still be done at some level. Link below.

The next version is most of the same material, but gets more into some of the technical side of the value that we can get out of standardized monitoring in an SRE context. This was recorded on October 15th, 2020.
