If you feel like you’re spending a pretty penny on Kubernetes-related cloud costs these days…well, at least you’re not alone. A 2021 Cloud Native Computing Foundation report—the first of its kind—recently found that 68% of organizations are spending considerably more on Kubernetes than they were a year ago. Kubernetes spending has been skyrocketing, stemming from a combination of overprovisioning coupled with low accountability and a lack of visibility into ever-higher costs.But writing increasingly bigger checks isn’t the only option. By understanding different Kubernetes cost monitoring techniques and implementing best practices for allocation and efficiency, you can drastically rein in Kubernetes costs without a ton of effort (and improve relations between finance and engineering teams in the process). This DeveloperWeek session will guide you through the various Kubernetes cost monitoring models at your disposal, such as showback and chargeback, and help frame the decision about which model is best suited for your organization (these solutions aren’t one-size-fits-all). The talk will also present best practices for implementing a Kubernetes cost monitoring strategy that’ll tick all the boxes for cost transparency, visibility, and accuracy. Attendees will come away with a clear plan of attack for how they can champion better Kubernetes cost controls within their organizations.
