    Ahh, there’s Kubernetes clusters everywhere, help, how am I going to manage all these?

    Life as a SRE
    Shifting your focus from System Administrator to Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) isn’t as big a step as you may think. My definition of SRE is doing what you can do beforehand, to make sure you do not get a call at 3am saying a system is down. And if you do, making sure you get back to bed as quickly and as stress free as possible.
