How does one prevent downtime?
There are several key steps that can be taken to minimize the risk of downtime, including implementing redundant systems, performing regular backups, and conducting thorough testing to identify and fix potential issues before they impact production. Monitoring and alerting are also critical components of preventing downtime, as they allow teams to quickly detect and address issues as they arise.

What is SLA?
SLA stands for Service Level Agreement, which is a contractual agreement between a service provider and a customer that defines the level of service expected to be delivered. The SLA typically outlines the key performance indicators (KPIs) that will be used to measure the quality of service, such as uptime, response time, and resolution time. It also includes details on the consequences of failing to meet these targets, such as penalties or compensation.
What is Downtime?
Downtime refers to the period during which a service or system is unavailable and cannot fulfill its intended function. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including hardware or software failures, network outages, human error, or malicious attacks. Downtime can have serious consequences for businesses, including lost revenue, diminished customer trust, and damage to reputation. As an SRE, it is essential to minimize downtime by implementing robust monitoring and alerting systems, conducting frequent performance testing, and ensuring that backup and recovery processes are in place and regularly tested.
