With hands-on experience in AWS DevOps and Google SRE, I’d like to offer my insights on the comparison of these two systems. Both have proven to be effective in delivering scalable and reliable services for cloud providers. However, improper management can result in non-functional teams and organizations. In this article, I’ll give a brief overview of AWS DevOps and Google SRE, examine when they work best, delve into potential pitfalls to avoid, and provide tips for maximizing the benefits of each.
DevOps is a widely used term with multiple interpretations. In this article, I’ll focus on AWS DevOps, which, according to the AWS blog, merges development and operations teams into a single unit. Under this model, engineers work across the entire application lifecycle, from development to deployment to operations. They possess a wide range of skills rather than being limited to a specific function.
