Highlights of the Discussion

  • What do we mean by SRE? What is its role?
  • Do you think that the organizations who are practicing SRE was able to adapt to the current situation better than the others who are not doing?
  • How SRE is helping organizations in other parts of the world to adopt to the current crisis and manage it better than those who have not implemented SRE?
  • How important is the monitoring that is helping in our managing the current decentralized situation where people are working from home and not in office?
  • Has the automation made SRE easier to change over to the way of working now?
  • How is one managing operation with cloud, virtualization, containers, and how to follow SRE practices there? How is it helping in a greater way?
  • What is chaos engineering and how can we practice it to be ready for similar crisis in future?
  • Is SRE playing a role in making things better from the security perspective? Will the SRE people be using security chaos engineering in their work?
  • How do we see that monitoring extends further into observability?
  • In the distributed system, how does observability become much more important? Are we also looking at observability from the point of view of security?
  • What is the area that is creating the maximum amount of toil for the SREs? And is it different in the current situation?
  • Is this the right time for the organizations to start building certain tools from the SRE point of view?
