"Running like Google," the CRE Program & Pivotal, with Andrew Shafer (Ep. 56)

March 27, 2017 Michael Coté

What does it really mean to "run like Google"? Is that even a good idea? Andrew Shafer comes back to the podcast to talk with Coté about how the Google SRE book and the newly announced Google CRE program start addressing those questions. We discuss some of the general principles, and "small" ones too that are in those bodies of work and how they represent an interesting evolution of it IT management is done. Many of the concepts that the DevOps and cloud-native community talks about pop in Google's approach to operations and software delivery, providing a good, hyper-scale case study of how to do IT management and software development for distributed applications. We also discuss Pivotal's involvement in the Google CRE program.
