Your Weekly Summary of What I Found More Relevant in the Cloud-Native Ecosystem.
Cloud Cost Management is the topic for this issue and I hope I have brought to you a different perspective to first think about how to improve cloud cost management but also how tools and techniques we have at our disposal to optimize cloud costs.
We will start with a look at how we can apply FinOps techniques in our Kubernetes clusters to make sure we are able to get all the data we need from our Kubernetes workloads.
We will continue talking about the cloud cost risks more from a management perspective and how you can protect yourself against them.
And we will end wth an educational journey to understand how the cloud costs works and why they are so complicated to understand.
Come with me on this journey!
Technical perspective to the Cloud Management and this CNCF article covers how we can use FinOps tools to help us in the process of knowing precisely the cost of our components and limiting them so the total cost doesn’t go to the roof.
We saw in the latest months a constant reminder of the importance of observability to know everything that is happening in our clusters, and everything goes around the three pillars: metrics, logs, and traces. But to have a complete view, we also need to add the cost aspect of it, especially if we are talking about a public cloud deployment
Cloud Cost is a big topic, and usually, it is crucial to have always in mind why your cloud bill can go higher than expected, as it is happening for many companies. This article covers what the risks are and how you can protect against them
This article covers different perspectives about cloud costs, more from the management and accountant’s view. However, you need to be careful about the pitfalls and errors we make when planning our cloud deployment or scaling up to a more considerable scope.
This article tries to explain, using the author’s academic background, the challenges when you try to understand the cloud costs to be able to manage appropriately.
This article covers the other cloud cost management view pillar: understanding. It is vital to have a clear understanding of how the cloud costs work to properly manage it or use the technical tools at your disposal to manage them effectively.
First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that endAristotle
