Yotascale Releases Multi-Cloud Container Cost Allocation and Optimization

The industry leader in dynamic cloud cost management, Yotascale, announces the general availability of multi-cloud cost allocation for Microsoft Azure and AWS customers, including containers and Kubernetes.

Some of the most sophisticated engineering teams worldwide, such as Zoom, Hulu, Klarna, and Compass, already trust Yotascale.

With the new update, Yotascale will add full support for Azure cost analytics and allocation and the option to allocate costs of Kubernetes clusters running in Azure back to the teams who are deploying services in the cluster.

The new version of Yotascale’s cloud cost management solution also adds new containerized infrastructure optimization suggestions. Essentially, it detects when a service is reserving more capacity than it needs and recommends a new reservation level. In turn, it reduces the overall cluster expenses.

Over 90% of enterprises will pursue a multi-cloud infrastructure and platform strategy by 2025, says Gartner. Due to this, business executives must establish a mechanism to analyze and understand cloud expenditure across all users’ cloud platforms, states Yotascale.

Asim Razzaq, who serves the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Yotascale, had this to say:

Enterprises are realizing that there are pros and cons to every cloud platform and that it is advantageous to them to leverage more than one cloud for each unique purpose, including for containerized and non-containerized workloads. We are proud to now offer Azure customers with many of the same benefits that our AWS customers have realized, empowering engineers and product teams to work together to hone their cloud computing for optimal cloud spend reduced carbon footprint, and maximum innovation.

The traditional ways of allocating costs of running containerized applications can no longer “cut it.” It’s primarily due to the shared nature of resources. Essentially, they make it difficult to understand what is driving up expenses.

Yotascale now provides a solution; the implemented shared cost allocation solves the issue of traditional cloud cost management. Clients can now divide cloud costs and assign them to teams or business units based on consumption.

Paul Nashawaty, who serves the role of Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, had this to say:

Research has shown enterprises are struggling to understand how their cloud costs grow with their business, and the first step is visibility. Without having visibility into your container environments, you can’t truly understand how adding a new customer or deploying a new feature will impact your cloud bill. From what I have seen, Yotascale’s multi-cloud support brings insights to prospects and delivers results for its enterprise customers.

Yotascale’s multi-cloud cost allocation solution includes several key features and benefits. First, it provides a multi-pane view of business hierarchies by role, structure, product design, or customer landscape. Next, role-based access control (RBAC) improves security. Clients will get the ability to ingest data across clouds and for containerized and non-containerized workloads for a single pane view of cloud pricing.

Other worthy mentions are the budgeting and forecasting for Azure and AWS from a single dashboard, along with the notifications and alerts sent straight to Slack, Microsoft Teams, or email.

When it comes to determining the container cost for Kubernetes cost analytics and optimization, Yotascale draws in container-level metrics and the cost of the instances underlying the containers. The company might also use additional information to distribute the cost of containers to a Team, Product, or Service and other infrastructure expenditures for that service.

Yotascale combines Kubernetes labels with regular cloud resource tags. Thus, it provides a deeper allocation model than anybody else on the market.
