Cloudthread consolidates usage optimization insights and reduces the pain of manual discovery across multiple sources.

As businesses increasingly rely on cloud services, the challenge of optimizing usage and managing costs comes to the forefront. While the cloud offers immense scalability, navigating its cost structures can be like solving a complex puzzle. This series dives deep into these usage optimization challenges and showcases how Cloudthread steps up to address them, making the puzzle a whole lot easier to solve.

Before Cloudthread: Juggling a Bunch of Tools

Talk to any FinOps expert or engineer about cloud cost management, and they'll likely mention bouncing between tools like AWS Compute Optimizer, AWS Trusted Advisor, GCP FinOps Hub, etc. These tools have their benefits, but they also come with their own set of challenges:

  • Too Many Pieces: Different tools, different advice. Trying to piece them all together can be a real headache.
  • Time Drain: Flipping between recommendations isn't just confusing; it's a time drain.
  • Missing the Big Picture: With info scattered everywhere, getting a full view of your cloud spending and potential savings is a challenge.
  • Costly: AWS Trusted Advisor, for instance, costs 3-7% of bill!
