How to develop your service health alerting strategy
Service issues are anything that could affect your availability, from outages and planned maintenance to service transitions and retirements. While rare—and getting rarer all the time, thanks to innovations in impactless maintenance and disciplines like site reliability engineering—service issues do occur, which is why service health alerting is such a critical part of successfully managing cloud operations. It’s all about helping your team understand the status and health of your environment so you can act quickly in the event of an issue. That can mean taking corrective measures like failing over to another region to keep your app running or simply communicating with your stakeholders so they know what’s going on.
