White Paper – Overcoming the Challenges of Kubernetes Cost Allocation and Reporting

Kubernetes Cost Allocation and Reporting

Kubernetes (or K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It’s a powerful tool for building and deploying sophisticated applications and scaling those applications to meet business needs.

Containerized applications can automatically request resources without involving IT Operations or other authorization. This can be incredibly effective for application scaling, but it can escalate costs unexpectedly. Which raises the age old question, who is paying the bill for these shared cloud resources? When costs are not allocated directly to their department, users can tend to treat the resources as free, driving up costs and leading to inefficiencies.

This White Paper lays out the path towards overcoming these issues, with more transparent cost allocation and using tools like Yotascale’s automated tagging of resources, to ensure nothing is ever overlooked at a company-wide scale.
