Blameless to Host Workshop on SLO Best Practices for Modern Software Businesses

Virtual event to discuss the role of SLOs within the SRE implementation journey, offer guidance on setting error budgets and metrics

Palo Alto, California, UNITED STATES

SAN MATEO, Calif., May 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blameless, the SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) company, today announced it will host a complimentary, virtual workshop Friday, May 31 on SLOs (service level objectives), the essential building block of an SRE implementation. While SLOs are considered a “key” part of SRE, many teams struggle to set and measure realistic SLOs.

SLOs are the line between happy and unhappy customers. When SLOs are set, they prevent companies from setting an unrealistic reliability target. SLOs also enable error budgets that give development teams permission to make riskier changes while setting the “stop” threshold. Error budgets allow development and operations teams to align on reliability goals and work together to achieve long-term deployment objectives.
