The principles and constructs of DevOps are pervading the industry and have lit the path for the capability to execute with both speed and quality in balance while managing hockey stick growth. Most companies and organizations are nowhere near “goal state”. As this audience knows, rubbing SRE, and the devops principles into existing companies and service code bases involves cultural engineering as well as deep tech investments. There is no larger enterprise cloud & consumer company in the world than Microsoft, and we’re on the journey now to investing heavily to shift to SRE. The core of Microsoft was not born in the cloud, but born in the first gen consumer (PC), and then rose to dominate Enterprise. There are a handful of services at Microsoft that were born in the cloud and have scaled massively, with Bing Search being the “grand daddy” with 12 years of experience in the pocket from which we have learned much. Microsoft Azure is the Enterprise Cloud. We are making an enormous investment to run at galactic scale to be the infrastructure for the world’s infrastructure and compete relentlessly in the market with top competitors. In this talk we will compare and contrast the journey within Bing to the current state of execution and how we are taking the lessons from that experience, inspiration from industry, and learnings to date as we build SRE within the Microsoft Enterprise services (Azure) which were not born in the cloud, but which have had enormous market success to date and are the future of our company.
