On-call is broken. It’s the way it’s always been. Most of us never stop and think about how expensive, manual, and error-prone on-call really is.
Today’s production fleets are convoluted environments with a mixture of VMs and containers running across multiple clouds and multiple accounts. All of this makes on-call work very tedious and automation even harder.
