The Five Pillars of well-architected Infrastructure:
How support development and run workloads effectively ?
How to secure infrastructure, application and data ?
How to perform application intended function correctly and consistently when it’s expected to ?
How to use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements ?
How to run systems to deliver business value at the lowest price point?
Reliability - The probability that a system will produce correct outputs at a given time.
Serviceability - Simplicity and speed with which a system can be repaired or maintained.
Availability - The probability that a system is operational at a given time.
NOTE: The accepted availability standard for emergency response systems is 99.999% or “five nines” – or about five minutes and 15 seconds of downtime per year.
Aggregate below 3 sources to make discoveries and predictions about the functioning of a complex system, which would otherwise be difficult:
Logs - Generated by most systems components and applications and consist of time-series data about the functioning of the system or application.
Traces - Track the flow of logic within the application.
Metrics - CPU/RAM reservation or usage, disk space, network connectivity, and more.
It offers an entire suite of observability tools integrated into one end-to-end platform.
