Expert Talks on all things DevOps & SRE

What is Continuous Reliability about?

As the role and discipline of Site Reliability Engineering has developed along the years, companies have also started adapting the new ideas, tech and processes in order to stay relevant and gain market leadership. As such, a lot of folks might have an incorrect or an incomplete idea about the way SRE is done or to how manage SRE teams. There exists a need to have regular conversations about things like:

  1. Platform Engineering
  2. Finops
  3. Blameless postmortems
  4. Chaos Engineering
  5. SRE Anti-Patterns
  6. Building and Managing SRE teams
  7. SRE Leadership

The idea is to get a bunch of SREs to meetup, deliver and listen to monthly talks on Site Reliability Engineering - war room stories, organizational set-up and culture around having processes and runbooks. Talking about learning opportunities and takeways is THE way to nurture the SRE culture - understand why SREs do the things they do, instead of doing it just for the sake of completing checkboxes before scaling, be it infrastructure or team.

Submit talks, panels, workshops and demos - become part of the conversation.

Key takeaways for participants

  1. Improved understanding of organizational needs and requirements.
  2. Improved public speaking skills.
  3. Networking opportunities.
  4. Knowledge sharing and community building.

Who should participate

  • Members of SRE, DevOps or platform teams.
  • A software developer or manager who is responsible for services running on any cloud platform or on-prem data center.
  • Technology leader of an engineering team that manages critical systems which should have minimal to zero downtime.

From Nginx to EnvoyProxy: A Journey of Edge Proxy Migration with Istio

Submitted Jan 29, 2024

Nginx is a popular choice for edge proxy traffic, but it has some limitations such as lack of http2 support and service discovery for upstream backends. This talk will share the experience of migrating from Nginx to EnvoyProxy, an open source load balancer that offers more features and flexibility for modern cloud applications. It will also explain how Istio, a service mesh platform, was leveraged to manage EnvoyProxy configuration and provide additional benefits such as traffic routing, security, and observability. The talk will discuss the motivation, architecture, design, and best practices of the migration process, as well as the challenges and lessons learned along the way.

About Speaker:
Ajay is a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) with 4+ years of experience in maintaining and automating scalable microservice infrastructure. Currently, he is working with an SRE team at, managing the digital ad traffic infrastructure. He is knowledgeable in adopting and scaling CNCF opensource projects within his organization and has been actively involved in projects such as Argocd, OpenTelemetry, and Istio.

Who should attend:
This talk is useful for developers, operators, and architects who are interested in learning about the benefits and challenges of migrating from Nginx to EnvoyProxy as an edge proxy solution. It is also useful for those who want to understand how Istio can help manage EnvoyProxy configuration and provide additional features such as service discovery, traffic routing, security, and observability.
