The evolution of the cloud in the last decade has radically simplified software deployment. Undoubtedly, major providers like AWS, Azure, GCP, Alibaba Cloud have removed entry barriers for developers to either launch a new product or to scale infinitely. However, no software company can keep scaling without taking a look at the cost of infrastructure as a percentage of revenue.

Many companies today are struggling with cloud costs eating up a significant portion of their gross margins. In this programme, we will discuss the following:

  1. Mental Models for understanding cloud costs according to the stages of a company’s growth:
    a. Attribution
    b. Governance
    c. Baselining
    d. Leakage
  2. Ways to analyze spends, extract insights, and spot anomalies.
  3. Infrastructure planning, forecasting:
    a. Reservation Cycles.
    b. Optimization choices based on the nature of the workloads.

After the conference you will walk away with:
1. Tips and techniques to reduce costs on infrastructure on clouds such as AWS.
2. Process and governance model to run a cost-optimized infrastructure sustainably.

Who should participate:
1. Engineering Leaders (Directors, VP Engineering, Architects)
2. SRE and Infrastructure Managers and Architects.
3. Developers running infrastructure ranging from tens to thousands of servers.
4. Anyone interested in reducing their cloud spends.
