About Build5Nines.com

Your trusted source for Cloud, DevOps, and SRE guidance!

Build5Nines (aka Build Five Nines) is focused on helping you be more productive with Cloud & Enterprise technology, specifically in relation to DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). Build5Nines was launched all the way back in 2015 (formerly named BuildAzure.com) by Chris Pietschmann with a heavy focus on Microsoft Azure related content. Since then, the site has grown to include a free weekly newsletter and a broader focus on DevOps and SRE topics. The site has quickly become one of the top Microsoft Azure and DevOps focused sites on the Internet!

We’ve also branched out to include all areas of cloud and enterprise technology surrounding the Microsoft and related technologies. In late 2019, the site was rebranded as Build5Nines.com as a way to show the broader focus on content that covers everything in the cloud and enterprise space; not just specifically Microsoft technologies. We cover areas including Microsoft Azure, HashiCorp, DevOps / SRE, Automation, Infrastructure Deployment, Software Development, CI/CD, Cloud Architecture, Windows Server, Linux, Open Source, Internet of Things (IoT), and so much more!

Build5Nines takes its inspiration after the highly sought after service availability target of 99.999% (“Five Nines“) available uptime. This level of uptime guarantees no more than 5.26 minutes of downtime per year. Many IT systems attain 99% or even 99.99% (“Four Nines“), but few are able to achieve Five Nines of availability. The primary goal of Build5Nines is to help you build IT systems that approach, or even may achieve, the 99.999% (“Five Nines“) level of high availability. Follow, subscribe, and join us in the journey to “Build Five Nines“!

Build5Nines.com is a showcase of unique content that focuses on EVERYTHING within the Cloud & Enterprise technology space; from Developer to IT Pro and everything in between. The site contains how-to articles, best practices, certification info, and much more!
