Shoreline founder and CEO, Anurag Gupta, joins Niall Murphy, Co-founder & CEO of Stanza, and Stephen Townshend, Host of the Slight Reliability Podcast, to discuss the importance of investing in reliability and the new community.


In this live webinar, CNCF assembled a panel of experts that led teams during rapid cloud expansion at businesses including AWS,, Google, Microsoft, and IBM. Anurag Gupta, Niall Murphy, and Stephen Townshend share their experiences and perspectives from the trenches. They discuss how to identify potential reliability issues before they become customers’ concerns, how to implement proactive monitoring, alerting, and remediation systems and best practices for ensuring your cloud-based services are designed for maximum availability. They aim to share some hard-won wisdom on improving your cloud services' reliability.

This panel deeply believes in investing in reliability. They show this not only by their work in their day jobs but also by helping launch the community as founding members. Their shared vision for creating a community of like-minded folks that can continue the reliability discussion is the idea that sparked this special CNCF webinar to mark the launch of the community.
