Fire Drills: A Guide to Preparing for Your Next Incident

Even the best-designed systems can suffer incidents. Through offering Customer Reliability Engineering (CRE) support—essentially, Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) as a service—for our customers, we here at Container Solutions have learned that the incident-response process needs to be as clear and concise as possible. 

To be ready for anything, you need to run fire drills. 


Fire drills can help any company improve its incident-response processes and make sure its engineers know how to react when an incident occurs.
