Your application is the key. You work for a company that has applications that you build and manage. They are critical to your business.
Applications that scale…applications that must stay operational.
You must manage your application to scale to your biggest day, and your biggest day grows and grows every year.
Your application needs grow and grow…and ebb and flow…and spike…and have unpredictable needs.
Your company is dependent on your application working. Your customers ASSUME your application will work. Your customers will not tolerate outages.
