From the Publisher

Who Should Read This Book

This book is intended for architects, managers, and directors who build and operate large-scale applications and systems, whether in an engineering or an operations organization. If you manage software developers, system reliability engineers, or operation teams, or you run an organization that contains large-scale applications and systems, the suggestions and guidance provided in this book will help you make your applications run smoother and more reliably.

If your application started small and has seen incredible growth (and is now experiencing some of the growing pains associated with that growth), you might be suffering from reduced reliability and reduced availability. If you struggle with managing technical debt and associated application failures, this book will provide guidance in reducing that technical debt to make your application able to handle larger scale more easily.

What’s New in the Second Edition

While many of the concepts discussed in this book are mostly timeless, many (such as serverless computing) have had to be updated to reflect industry changes over the last four years.

Additionally, I’ve spent the last several years traveling around the world talking and speaking about these topics. I’ve learned a lot from various interactions with customers and other experts, and I’ve incorporated much of what I’ve learned into this edition.

An extensive update on cloud utilization has also been added to this book.

Finally, the content has been significantly restructured and reorganized from the first edition to make the information more accessible and relevant.
