Vantage Engineering with Ben Schaechter
Vantage is a system for optimizing cloud costs. It provides tools and interfaces for developers to analyze how they are spending on AWS resources, and has recently expanded into GCP as well. Vantage users gain an easy interface into their costs that would otherwise be hard to analyze via the raw AWS console.
Ben Schaechter is the founder of Vantage. In a previous show he gave an overview of Vantage. In today’s episode he returns to discuss the engineering internals of Vantage and provide a macro perspective on where people are wasting money in the cloud.
