How Engineering-Led Optimization Works Achieve Cloud Efficiency Without Slowing Down Innovation Historically, cloud cost optimization has been the responsibility of finance teams. Engineers have bought what they claim to need to build top-notch software; finance teams have gotten (and paid) the bill; neither has had an in-depth understanding of what the other is doing.

CloudZero unveils our new logo and brand.

With CloudZero you get insights about your applications and systems, helping you manage operations at a scale that you’ve never had before. Our platform provides you with insights about every piece of your system, including the real cost of resources, resource utilization, reserved capacity and cost center efficiency.

With the accurate and trusted data provided by CloudZero you can minimize or eliminate under utilized resources, visualize costs for easy comprehension and oversee the entire software lifecycle. Nothing is out of view when using CloudZero’s Observability platform. From regional views to individual resources, you have insights at every level to help you keep your systems running smoothly.

How do we do it?

  • Collect and Normalize: CloudZero’s platform starts by collecting the data from your CloudWatch, CloudTrail, VPC Flowlogs, Lambda Data Events and Billing Data from every AWS account you connect. This part of the platform is isolated in its own account for security and has read-only access to the accounts you connect.
  • Populate the Stream: All of the data collected is normalized and the events, resources, statistics and billing data are organized into data streams which allow our platform to perform real-time analytics on all the data collected.
  • Find Meaning: Our algorithms take in the normalized data and perform complex analytics sifting through all the data to filter noise and enhance signal. We use Machine Learning on a large scale to learn what is valuable to surface.
  • Visualize Everything: The application provides opinionated visualizations of the insights determined by the platform’s AI. From regional system maps to single resources to cost of service broken down by team, CloudZero’s platform provides true observability to everyone in your organization.

Observability for Everyone. Add cost as a first-class metric and understand the financial effect of operational decisions.
