Mastering Cloud Cost Management with Hava's Custom Search

By Alan Blackmore on Sep 4, 2023 12:31:00 PM

In the dynamic world of cloud infrastructure, managing costs can be a challenging task. However, with Hava.io's custom search, you can gain a clear view of your cloud expenses, enabling you to manage your costs more effectively.

Custom search is more than just a feature; it's a solution to the common problem of managing large and complex cloud environments. With Hava.io, you can build custom diagrams and quickly locate resources from hundreds of cloud accounts. This tool is especially useful when you need to find an individual resource, an IP address, or a VPC running in your managed environments in your AWS, Azure or GCP environments.

One of the key benefits of Hava.io's custom search is its ability to create custom diagrams that self-update. This means you always have the most current view of your cloud infrastructure. But what makes it even more powerful is the ability to view estimated costs for a resource, VPC or an entire region. Every resource carries an estimated cost based on the cloud vendor price guidance, which is displayed in the attribute pane on the right-hand side of the Hava infrastructure diagrams and also against each resource on the list view.

Avoiding Cloud Architectural Sprawl with Better Cloud Cost Observability

By Team Hava on Jun 9, 2023 12:30:00 PM

The rapid deployment of cloud solutions often leads to unexpected costs and architectural sprawl. Hava.io, a leading cloud observability platform, offers a solution that enhances FinOps capabilities by providing contextual cloud cost observability.

The move to cloud solutions can lead to unexpected costs and a sprawling cloud architecture. 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.

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 avoiding architectural sprawl.
