They discussed on how to implement SLO, SLI, Error Budget in organizations in a better way; how to overcome the challenges coming across; how to use Chaos Engineering; how to improve the value of SRE with improved reliability in a scenario where there are multiple vendors providing service, and much more.


  1. What is your experience on the SLOs, SLI, and error budget scenario and how it is helping organizations?
  2. What is your experience with your customers with different organizations that you have seen?
  3. While talking about these SLO’s, and error budgets, how do you see that working when in an organization there are multiple suppliers delivering different things from different perspective?
  4. As a provider of infrastructure, what are the challenges faced to bring in the SRE kind of a service?
  5. When we say that SREs can decide their workload, as a customer, are you going to give your vendors that autonomy?
  6. When looking at the SRE tooling, is it the customer who would invest or are we going to invest as a service provider?
  7. How do we see chaos engineering security engineering to be practiced, and how it should grow? Is it mandatory for every organization, to really look at it to provide a reliable secure system?
