Choose Your Own Adventure: SRE Life at Red Hat

Red Hat does managed services. We do DevOps in the style of the Google SRE Book. We’re a decent sized and growing org that supports customers 24/7.  Our team is at the forefront of operationalizing OpenShift 4’s revolutionary set of capabilities, and are a way-to-market for many of Red Hat’s newest portfolio offerings.

What does a day-in-the-life of a Red Hat SRE look like…  You remember these, don’t you?

If you drop into one of our Slack channels, you might find some interesting discussions on

  • Building and maintaining CI/CD pipelines.
  • Writing Operators in golang to handle managed services use-cases.
  • Handling upgrades of managed OpenShift clusters.
  • Chatting with cloud provider technical teams on weird quirks of their API.
  • Debugging bizarre, nearly intractable production issues using the scientific method.
  • Ensuring our managed OpenShift platforms are the most secure offerings possible.
  • Patternfly-based front-end work:  https://cloud.redhat.com/openshift
  • We should probably write a library that lets teams version control their SLI/SLO/SLAs and generate Grafana dashboards from them.
    • Prometheus and Grafana and Thanos ftw.
  • Developing the microservices behind api.openshift.com.
    • Actually operating those microservices.
