SLI’s and SLO’s, Explained

  • Remote workshops happen wherever you want them to—study, living room, treehouse, you name it.
  • March 9th
  • 17:00 CET (2 hours)


SLIs* and SLOs** help know where the heck you stand with your systems. They clear things up and let you know WTF you’re working towards. We’re hosting a free taster training session on this with Elieser Pereira, a Customer Reliability Engineer at Container Solutions. He’ll explain SLIs and SLOs - vital metrics for keeping an organisation’s platform running reliably.


*SLIs, or Service Level Indicators, are key measurements of the availability of a system. It’s a wonderful measurement of (literally) how reliable your system is. 

**SLOs, or Service Level Objectives, are the goals we set for how much availability we expect out of that system. 

Elieser will discuss the meaning of these metrics and the role they play in Site Reliability Engineering.

Why attend? 

  • Understand the importance of knowing how reliable your service is... 
  • ...and how reliable it should be. 
  • Understand the connection between SLIs, SLOs and SLAs

Who should attend?

  • Operations engineers
  • Engineering team leads
  • Engineering managers of IT teams who want to gain a working knowledge of how they can better understand the reliability of their systems.
  • You, probably. (Let’s not pretend that system reliability doesn’t affect us all)

You will need: 

  • To know a little about Site Reliability Engineering (SRE)
  • Some basic knowledge of Cloud Native concepts and system administration.
