Measuring costs in Kubernetes environments is often complex. But it does not need to be. In this session, you will learn how you can achieve complete cost transparency and optimize your cloud spends, while retaining infrastructural flexibility.

We will discuss how to control and optimize in minutes the cost of your AWS EKS, Google GKE and Azure AKS applications. Instantly. You will learn about powerful -yet simple- strategies to rightsize your clusters: automated scaling up and scaling down to zero your nodes and pods, smart selection of VM shapes, and the automated use of spot instances.
