Back in Action: New Role, New Focus, and a Whole Lot of Cloud

Hello everyone,

It's been a while, hasn't it? First off, I want to acknowledge my long absence from this blog. Life has a funny way of keeping us busy, and for me, that's been a focus on my growing kids and striking that ever-elusive work-life balance. Family comes first, and I've been cherishing the time spent with them.

New Role at Mode3 Cloud

I'm thrilled to announce that I've taken on the role of CTO at Mode3 Cloud Inc. It's an exciting new chapter, and I'm eager to bring my expertise in cloud architecture and cost optimization to the table.

Upcoming Content Explosion: Mastering Cloud Cost Data

Get ready for a content explosion that's going to rock your Cloud Native world. We're talking blog posts, videos, and deep-dive technical insights. But here's where it gets exciting: I'll be focusing on how to ingest cost and utilization data to perform amazing tricks that will lead to significant cost savings. I'll still be throwing out my usual random tech 'ah-ha' moments too, for those who enjoy them. :)

The Magic of Ingesting Cost and Utilization Data

The cloud isn't just a playground; it's also a treasure trove of data. By ingesting cost and utilization data effectively, you can unlock insights that will help you dominate your cloud spend. We'll walk you through the tools and techniques to make this happen.

Topics We'll Cover

  • PaaS Utilization: Maximizing the value of your Platform-as-a-Service investments.

  • Meter Volatility: Understanding the fluctuations in your cloud costs.

  • Cost Driver vs Cost Attractor: Identifying what's pulling your costs in different directions.

  • Custom Data Analysis: Tailoring your data to find unique insights.

  • Autoscaling Done Right: Efficiently scaling your resources without breaking the bank.

  • Finding Unused Resources: Locating and eliminating waste to improve your bottom line.

Tackling the 'Too Difficult' Box

We'll also be diving into those root issues that often get shoved into the 'too difficult' box, leading to a false economy of simply increasing resources rather than fixing inefficiencies. It's time to open that box and solve those problems once and for all.

Stay Tuned

I'm back, recharged, and ready to bring you some of the most valuable content you'll find on Cloud Native technologies and cost management. Stay tuned for the first installment of our content explosion, and as always, feel free to reach out with any questions or topics you'd like to see covered.

Until next time,

Omar McIver
CTO, Mode3 Cloud Inc.
