"Tag or Die": The Importance of Proper Tagging in Cloud Cost Management with Hava.io

May 24, 2023 1:52:59 PM


In the realm of cloud computing, the phrase "Tag or Die" has never been more relevant. Hava.io, a leading cloud visualization platform, emphasizes the importance of proper tagging in cloud cost management.

Cloud solutions often lead to unexpected costs, causing financial concerns for businesses. Hava.io addresses this issue by bringing context to cloud spend monitoring. This approach helps identify underutilized resources, find cost-saving opportunities, explain cost increases, and rationalize cloud estate.

Hava.io's solution is particularly beneficial for users of AWS, Azure, and GCP. It provides visual context to cloud infrastructure, enabling users to identify cost culprits and provide detailed insights. When cost alerts start pinging away or budgets start to blow out, users can use Hava to zero in on the culprit and provide the required context around that particular resource.

Moreover, Hava.io's continuous monitoring allows users to easily track changes in cloud spend. By reviewing the infrastructure diagrams individually or creating a custom view of all instances onto a single diagram, users can drill into the versioning of the associated infrastructure views to see exactly what changed when. This context helps users answer the inevitable "why has our AWS bill increased" questions.

However, the effectiveness of these features is heavily dependent on proper resource tagging. Untagged resources can lead to confusion, misallocation of costs, and even unnecessary running of resources. The assumption is simple: if it's not tagged, it shouldn't be running.

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 a crucial tool for managing cloud costs and explaining the impacts when cloud resources are not tagged correctly.

Remember, in the world of cloud cost management, it's "Tag or Die".
