The Compute team...

We firmly believe in the SRE philosophy of applying software engineering methodologies to operational tasks. We communicate with SLOs & know that if you can't measure it, you can't improve it. We create self-healing & self-orchestrating distributed systems. We operate multiple physical data centers & leverage this fact to our advantage with the ability to control every part of the entire stack.
