On today’s Datanauts episode we look at the changing world of Ops. We talk about what Ops means (Operations, DevOps, Site Reliability Engineering, etc.), though one common thread is that everyone in the organization has responsibility for delivering a quality product.
We also discuss the skill sets needed for today’s operations engineers, hiring issues, and concepts such as error budgets that are designed to encourage more risk-taking in an organization.
We also get into databases and database reliability engineering (which Charity wrote a book about), including differences between MySQL and PostGres, as well as how MongoDB has evovled.
