Cloud cost management vs FinOps
      Cloud cost management
    • Focused on an IT guy who needs to chase R&D teams to tag and rightsize resources, and remove unused
    • It gives a report to help in the short-term, in a few months issues return
    • The R&D team is disconnected from the cost-saving process and has no responsibility
    • Focused on the whole FinOps team including engineers who generate the
      majority of costs
    • Builds a cost-saving long-term process by engaging and educating the team
    • IT guys are responsible for building best practices; engineers – for their own
      resources and TTLs; OptScale – for educating teams and delivering the best practices

    • Minimal cloud cost for ML/AI experiments and development

ML/AI optimization recommendations

    • Utilizing Reserved/Spot instances and Saving Plans
    • Rightsizing and instance family migration
    • Detect of CPU/IO, IOPS inconsistencies that can be caused by data transformations
    • Cross-regional traffic
    • Spark executors’ idle state
    • Run comparison based on the segment duration
IT environment management
