Workshop: Enhancing Reliability on AWS with Service Level Objectives

Join Nobl9 and Amazon Web Services in this workshop on setting Service Level Objectives for your AWS-hosted application

Workshop Time and Date:

June 11th, 2024
12:00 PM EDT


Reliability of your offerings is non-negotiable to users, and too often is siloed to the various elements of your app and infrastructure. Achieving a customer-centric view of reliability - going beyond incident management and identifying day-to-day issues affecting the user experience - requires a holistic approach. Implementing Service Level Objectives (SLOs) and error budgeting allows you to monitor your application as a singular entity, prioritizing issues that affect the user and identifying the invisible mini-incidents that cause product abandonment and switching.

Learning objectives:

In this workshop, we will walk you through how to set up AWS Observability for your application, and Service Level Objectives (SLOs) on your AWS infrastructure to provide a hands-on experience using AWS services and Nobl9’s SLO-based reliability platform to build reliability and observability into your AWS-hosted product.

You will learn the basics of setting up SLO-based monitoring on a live application consisting of AWS infrastructure such as application load balancers, RDS databases and EKS clusters. You will learn how to integrate SLOs into your application and tune them for user-facing reliability.
