As companies move more and more workloads to the cloud, cost management in the cloud is becoming critically important. Modern application development methodology increasingly involves moving to service and microservice architectures enabled by the cloud and kubernetes is the backbone of this modern infrastructure trend. Managing costs of kubernetes clusters is therefore becoming increasingly important. Kubecost is the company focused on giving visibility into kubernetes resources, allowing you to reduce your overall kubernetes based infrastructure spend. Webb Brown is the founder of Kubecost and joins us today.
