Cost Controls in the Cloud

Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.
The pay-as-you-go model used by most Cloud Service Providers shifts ownership of resource procurement from finance and management teams to IT, engineering, development and other stakeholders. This requires individual contributors to adopt a more "cost conscious" approach to development, and for projects to invest time into the creation of automated cost controls and cost-focused monitoring. This talk presents some patterns and examples of cost controls based on our experience managing a multi-tenant cloud environment. This presentation was given in July 2019 at the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting held in Tacoma, Washington.
