When did we start using these expensive cloud resources?

Sometimes it can feel like your cloud infrastructure costs are out of control. Bill shock! Wasn't this whole cloud thing supposed to save money?

You might be using third party cost monitoring and platform budgets to keep an eye on cloud spend and you should. But sometimes it's difficult to establish exactly which environment or resources are the cause of the rise in cloud spend.

Architectural decisions can significantly impact costs. Diagrams showing exactly what is running and the impact on FinOps is a concept that Hava.io, a leading cloud visualization platform, brings to life. Not only can you know when things change, you can zero in on the exact cause because of the context architectural monitoring and visualization brings to the party.

Cloud solutions, while offering numerous benefits, can sometimes lead to unexpected costs due to poor or outdated architectural decisions. Hava.io addresses this issue by providing visual context to your cloud infrastructure. This approach helps identify underutilized resources, find cost-saving opportunities, and helps drive cloud estate rationalization

Hava.io's solution is particularly beneficial for users of AWS, Azure, and GCP. It provides interactive environment diagrams that stay up-to-date on auto-pilot and record changes to infrastructure. These diagrams can be used to identify changes or poorly designed or outdated infrastructure that is costing more than it should.

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and professional services organizations can greatly benefit from Hava.io. When cost alerts start pinging away or budgets start to blow out, you can use Hava to zero in on the culprit and provide the required context around that particular resource. They can respond by creating custom views using tags to show everything associated with a particular application or project and a history of the changes. They can then provide the customer with a link to the diagram showing what is running, what they have reviewed, and what they should consider next, especially if you can explain visually how you can help reduce their cloud spend.

Hava: AWS View Types

In conclusion, all AWS, Azure, and GCP cloud users should use Hava.io to bring context to their cloud cost observability. By understanding the context behind each resource, users can optimize their cloud resources, reduce costs, and improve decision-making. This innovative approach is a game-changer in the realm of FinOps, making Hava.io an essential tool for managing cloud costs and explaining the impacts when cloud resources are not tagged correctly, orphaned, or not in use.
