Nearly all new tech companies build in a public cloud and established companies are rapidly migrating to the cloud from their on-prem data centers. But this move to the cloud can lead to a visibility problem. Cloud Providers offer  not only Compute instances but also manage services like databases, blob storage, queues and more. It can be difficult for SRE teams and security departments to understand what is happening across a company’s cloud accounts.

Yevgeny Pats is the creator of CloudQuery, an open source cloud asset inventory powered by SQL. CloudQuery allows you to ingest and structure the resources in your cloud accounts so that you can query them using SQL. This allows SRE teams to understand the source of specific resources while security teams can ensure compliance with policies. 

In this episode we’ll discuss CloudQuery, Yevgeny’s entrepreneurial background and raising funding with an open source project
