Understanding SRE

The Stack Overflow Podcast

Vladyslav Ukis, Head of R&D at Siemens Healthineers and an expert in site reliability engineering (SRE), joins Ben and Ryan to talk about the relationship between SRE and DevOps, balancing SRE principles with organizational structure, and how he thinks GenAI will impact his field.

Vlad is Head of Research and Development at Siemens Healthineers, the healthcare arm of tech conglomerate Siemens. He wrote about SRE on our blog here.

His book, Establishing SRE Foundations: A Step-by-Step Guide to Introducing Site Reliability Engineering in Software Delivery Organizations, is available now.

Site reliability engineering (SRE) applies a software engineering approach to IT operations and infrastructure, with the goal of building scalable, reliable systems capable of handling constant updates from dev teams. SRE is closely related to DevOps.

ICYMI, we talked with Chef cofounder Adam Jacob about how he’s creating a new-and-improved approach to infrastructure automation. Listen to that conversation here.

Connect with Vlad on LinkedIn, where you can also read snippets of his book on SRE.
