By Andrew Nhem on August 31, 2016
We’re answering all kinds of questions about AWS cost management, showing folks how to identify their most expensive AWS resources, continuing our pre-event coverage of re:Invent 2016, and learning how OpenDNS/Cisco builds a culture of cloud cost management.

As we trek towards the end half of 2016, we’re answering all kinds of questions about AWS cost management, showing folks how to identify their most expensive AWS resources, continuing our pre-event coverage of re:Invent 2016, and learning how OpenDNS/Cisco builds a culture of cloud cost management using Cloudability. Read on for more details of what we’ve been up to.

Introducing: Ask the experts

We get the opportunity to answer all kinds of cloud cost management questions day to day and after our monthly webinars. Instead of locking away those answers in emails, calls, and video recordings, we’re publishing them in a series called “Ask the experts.” Check out our first article and ask your own questions!

re:Invent sessions not to miss

Now that AWS has published its first wave of re:Invent 2016 sessions, folks can take a look at what kinds of talks and discussions to expect from the various tracks. To help people avoid missing out on the latest cloud news and stories, AWS released a new Reserved Seating function that will hold a seat for attendees during each session. Get our recent re:Invent updates from the article.

Finding your most expensive AWS resources

Identifying the AWS resources that drive the most costs helps DevOps and IT teams kick off optimization discussions properly. See how we use resource-level analytics to help users identify expensive AWS resources, and what to do about them.

OpenDNS/Cisco builds a culture of cloud cost management

Our friends at OpenDNS/Cisco talked about how they use Cloudability to not only save on AWS, but to tell a better story for their finance teams about cloud cost management and efficiency. See the case study to learn more.

Join the team

We’re looking for talented folks to join our team and help us take cloud cost management to the next level. We’re interested in talent and skills across the board, including Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Product, and Success. Check out our careers page to learn more.
