We often think of reliability in terms of improving individual components like machines, servers, and operational processes. But in a distributed system, something is always failing, and the more parts you add, the more vectors there are for failure. While tools and optimizations can help, reaching the highest levels of reliability requires rethinking the basic design of how components behave and interact.

Astrid Atkinson discusses techniques for building systems that are resilient by design.
