In this OpenShift Commons Briefing, Red Hat Spain’s Sergio Ocón-Cárdenas covers the basic principles of Cost Management, Why it is important and Why you should care about it.  We also get a preview of new SaaS capabilities coming soon in Red Hat OpenShift.

Sergio demonstrates the main concepts about cost management for OpenShift deployments  as well as the major challenges faced while dealing with it.  He also covered tagging, differences between using tags in OpenShift and in other clouds, like AWS or Azure and provided tips and best practices. We also learned how to  properly manage, understand, forecast and estimate budgets not only in your container platform but in your multi-cloud deployment.

Slides are available here.

What is OpenShift Commons?

Commons builds connections and collaboration across OpenShift communities, projects, and stakeholders. In doing so we’ll enable the success of customers, users, partners, and contributors as we deepen our knowledge and experiences together.

Our goals go beyond code contributions. Commons is a place for companies using OpenShift to accelerate its success and adoption. To do this we’ll act as resources for each other, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer communication.
