DevOps and Site Reliability professionals share one goal: optimizing the release cycle. Many businesses merge the responsibilities of these expert areas because of this. Development and Operations were once separate teams, too. Once merged, DevOps became increasingly important. Today, it could be said that the main goal of DevOps is to maximize software development and operations efficiency, while Site Reliability Engineers focus on creating increasingly scaleable, reliable software systems. Qualifications include related experience, certifications, and/or relevant degrees.
