Balancing Engineering Autonomy and Agility with Cloud Cost Through Resource Governance

A New Approach to Resource and Cost Optimization

Resource governance is a new approach to resource and cost optimization that is focused on engineers, with the goal of giving them optimal flexibility while still maintaining safety and cost efficiency.

Resource governance is focused on automatically optimizing instance selection, but instead of fixating on just the single optimal selection for each workload, it provides freedom to choose among many options, but puts guardrails on the choice to prevent performance issues, configuration problems, or excessive cost. These guardrails are built into the DevOps pipeline via their native policy engines, automating the process and freeing engineers to focus on their core tasks, only dealing with exceptions when it comes to performance and cost.

Watch this 25-minute session to learn about Cloud Resource Governance and visualize the capabilities via our demo.
