Tick-tock goes the money clock..
No business can afford to ignore cloud costs, and let’s be honest - until now it’s been a messy business.
If you’re smaller, you might try a low-tech approach, like spreadsheets - but those are a recipe for manual errors. If you’re bigger, you’re probably using a FinOps tool - but it never works quite right and often leads to workarounds that are the very opposite of agile.
If you’re nodding your head in agreement, you’ll be pleased to learn that Cycloid has something else to offer you.
Based on data collected by Gartner, costs associated with cloud waste or overprovisioning were expected to exceed $26.6 billion in 2021
Monitoring and cost prediction built-in from the bottom up
Wouldn’t it be nice to see how much you’re spending before deployment? Cycloid’s Cloud Cost Estimation - based on our open-source FinOps feature TerraCost - estimates the price of an infrastructure based on the related Terraform and is integrated into Pipelines and StackForms. This way your devs can automatically see the cost of their deployment before they hit play and avoid unpleasant surprises.
Reduce cloud waste
You know what else drives up your monthly cloud expenses? Cloud waste. Not only is this financially inefficient, but it’s also very harmful to the environment. Our FinOps module comes with a built-in Cloud Carbon Footprint feature that allows you to take a deeper look at your cloud carbon emissions and make better, conscious decisions when it comes to cloud consumption.
True visibility throughout the SDLC
There’s a way to make technical info accessible to everyone and Cycloid’s found it. In our one-of-a-kind Cloud Cost Management module you can get a graphical representation of your costs in a simple visual interface and customize it by project, provider (AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and more), tag, region, date and more.
Asset management made easy
Never lose another gigabyte! Our Asset Inventory module allows you to view all your public and private cloud resources in a single panel, so you know exactly how much has been used by project, team, provider and more. Worrying about overusing resources on private cloud? Create resource quotas in Quota Management and allocate private cloud assets (Nutanix, VMWare) per team.
Cloud costs are the very last thing you should leave to chance
Life the Cycloid way
No more prescriptive cost control or unexpected expenses - if everyone’s responsible for cost management, nothing gets lost in translation.
Transparency and collaboration lead to better cloud decisions and safer innovation.
When you know exactly what you’re spending on and the cloud carbon impact of your deployments, you can take steps towards reducing it.
