Service Level Overkill - SLO In a World of SOA

Service levels are excellent for understanding the limits you put on your own services, but in a world of web services your own ability to create a useful SLO is impacted by everything you depend upon. In this chat I discuss how to understand SLOs from other teams, how to try to mitigate SLO impact and how to deal with it when it happens. I also talk about what a low SLO means, and why it shouldn't be assumed that you need 9 9's of availability to offer a useful service!
