How we use GenAI in SRE

CommitConf, Madrid(2024)


Google services are powered by the largest network of computers in the world. Site Reliabity Engineers (SRE) make sure that the whole stack is cool: datacenters are safe, well provisionedl; we have fallback mechanims, and data integrity; to making sure we design our stack properly, using the right storage, replication and software trade-offs. Generative AI is a great tool to make us super-effective: having access to tools to generate our most toily configurations, to classify risks and events, to manage large swaths of machines with agents or to automate complex workflows cheaply. This talk will cover the journey that SRE started years ago to become a truly AI-First discipline and the latest advancements in tooling, practices and workflows.
