Before the cloud there was the data center. Private data centers represented a fixed cost, capital expense model with pretty straightforward procurement, cost management, forecasting and cost allocation processes.
The cloud led to a major overhaul in these processes. Over time these processes coalesced into a comprehensive FinOps framework bundling together best practices, cultural paradigms and tooling.
With its ephemeral, hyper scalable and shared resources model, Kubernetes now requires a similar update in FinOps processes and practices.
In this ebook we outline FinOps best practices fine-tuned for cloud native environments.
