Radical ideas from The Practice of Cloud System Administration

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open April 1st, 2015, Wednesday 4:30pm.

Tom will highlight some of the most radical ideas from the new book “The Practice of Cloud System Administration”. The book focuses on “distributed” or “cloud” computing and brings a DevOps/SRE sensibility to the practice of system administration. Unsatisfied with books that cover either design or operations in isolation, the authors created this new reference centered around a comprehensive approach.

Some of the radical advice includes: improving uptime by using cheap unreliable hardware, why you should crash servers at random times, and that you should make peace with outages.

Join us afterwards at Bloom's Tavern where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. Bloom's Tavern is located at 208 E 58th St, between 2nd at 3rd.
