PhotoMIX-Company / PixabayOver the past year or so, we have spoken with quite a few prospective users who have defined their responsibilities as site reliability engineering (SRE). If, like me, you’re not familiar with the term, I’ll save you the Google search. SRE is a discipline that incorporates aspects of software engineering and applies that to IT operations problems. Practitioners aim to create ultra-scalable and highly reliable software systems. According to Ben Treynor, founder of Google’s Site Reliability Team, SRE is “what happens when a software engineer is tasked with what used to be called operations.” And its origins can also be traced back to 2003 and Google when Ben was hired to lead software engineers to run a production environment.The site reliability engineering foot

Google is warning Android users that it doesn’t carry Fortnite Battle Royale in the Play Store. If you search for Fortnite in the Play Store, it will return a notice from Google. “Fortnite Battle Royal by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play,” the sign says, likely as a clarification to users, as first spotted by 9to5Google. By saying upfront that the Play Store doesn’t have Fortnite, Google is attempting to protect unknowing users who might download some malicious clone of the app. Epic Games requires users who want to run Fortnite on Android to download an APK of the beta directly from its site. The decision essentially cuts Google out of potential revenue from app purchases, which would have been a 30 percent cut. Android settings also usually dissuade users from down

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- What might Google's search data reveal about this year's elections in Ohio? Cleveland.com's politics team is working with the tech giant to try and find out. As part of its News Lab project, Google has custom-built for cleveland.com a more targeted, politically focused version of its public Trends tool. We are using it to inform and enrich our coverage, and we hope it will help us provide insights to our readers that they won't get anywhere else. The public Trends tool takes all of Google's search data, anonymizes it (no individual accounts are identified) and aggregates it, identifying trending topics in real time. You can filter it down to see what people are most interested in on the state level or even individual cities. The custom Ohio tool shows how fre...
