Site Reliability Engineer is a hot, new cloud career for IT professionals who want to make the most of their development and operations skills.

Site Reliability Engineers deliver performance, availability, and security for critical applications and cloud infrastructures.

A new certification is available for Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) who would like to certify on IBM Cloud. SREs with the IBM Certified Professional SRE – Cloud v1 certification have demonstrated their ability to do the following:

  • Engineer scalable, secure, and highly reliable services
  • Use automation, DevOps principles, proactive maintenance, and rigorous troubleshooting to manage critical workloads on IBM Cloud
  • Operate services that sustain service level objectives

This professional-level certification validates that individuals can perform these tasks with little to no assistance from product documentation, support, or peers.
