SRE, what does it mean? What’s that?

In this story, I define what is SRE and what it means concretely. There is sometimes confusion between SRE and DevOps. Here I try to clarify what SRE is.

Let’s start by defining SRE. SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) is based on the idea that from a business point of view, the most important thing is to have a reliable application. Indeed, if the application is not reliable enough, there will be fewer customers and therefore less added value. This concept was created by Google.
