Course Description

Site reliability engineers (SREs) can use various testing techniques to ensure software operations are as failure-free as possible for a specified time in a specified environment. In this course, you'll explore multiple testing techniques, their purposes, and the tasks involved in their execution. You'll start by examining traditional software testing approaches, such as unit tests, integration tests, and system tests.

Next, you'll investigate the components and use cases of various reliability metrics applied to SRE testing, including mean time to failure (MTTF), mean time to recover (MTTR), and mean time between failures (MTBF).

Lastly, you'll outline several software testing approaches, such as stress, configuration, integration, acceptance, production, and canary testing, among others. You'll identify when, how, and by whom each of these testing types is carried out.
