KILL Cloud BILL: Common Patterns and Tips to Reduce your Cloud Bill
The cloud is affordable – IFF you know the pricing models, your current and future resource consumption, the difference between alternative services and configuration options and planned your migration carefully. Unless there is a substantial amount of experience within the design team, the overwhelming complexity and variety of options often lead to workloads with huge cost saving potentials. Unfortunately the resulting infrastructure is rarely reviewed later on.This is not a talk about reserved instances or FaaS, but instead about common patterns, small tricks and other things people miss when first building products in the cloud that help you reduce your cloud bill.
Put the ‘Auto’ in Autoscaling – Make Kubernetes VPA and HPA work together for optimal resource provisioning
Without autoscaling, most companies recognize they’re either wasting a lot of resources or risking performance/reliability issues. There’s no way to effectively set resource requests unless your actual usage is completely flat. A way to solve this is by having knowledgeable people look at it all day to make adjustments, or you can just take the financial hit or the risk of instability. Alternatively one can use technology like machine learning to solve the issue with high accuracy and little to no effort. In this talk we’ll inform you and demonstrate to you this last option.
