Skip About this course

Site Reliability Engineers must have the right tools and strategies to perform in a fast-paced technical environment. Nine competency areas guide the successful practice of IBM Cloud SREs.

Applying Site Reliability Engineering principles

Operations

Monitoring and incident management

Security and compliance

Compute infrastructure

Networking

Storage and data management

Reliability and resiliency

Deployment automation

In this second course of the three-part Professional Certificate in Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), you will focus on the following five SRE competencies:

Compute infrastructure

Networking

Storage and data management

Reliability and resiliency

Deployment automation

NOTE: The remaining four SRE competencies are covered in Course 1: SRE Fundamentals and Security.

This course covers approximately 50% of the required content to help you prepare for the “IBM Certified Professional SRE - Cloud V2” certification exam.

If you are interested in pursuing the “IBM Certified Professional SRE - Cloud V2” certification, to improve your passing success, we recommend that you complete all three offerings of the Professional Certificate in Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) to ensure a successful certification exam experience.
