Eli and I talk about how to differentiate between the 'cattle view' vs. 'pet view' on cloud resources, i.e. when to look at the whole thing - and when to zoom in to one resource.
We touch upon how 30-70% of cloud resources are wasted, while up to 25% of clusters do not have enough compute assigned to them. We explore the origins of this problem in underestimating second-day operations and how the current shift towards austerity shifts more attention to right-sizing. And here comes the interesting twist: apart from saving money, right-sizing also lowers emissions - a growing concern among tech companies.
