The Yotascale Story

An idea born
in battle

Cloud cost management software purpose-built to end the ongoing conflict between engineering and finance teams

spreadsheets and
wasted time

You know how engineering teams get frustrated when finance comes to them with complicated spreadsheets and automated recommendations from their cloud cost management product that are beyond useless, “advising” them to turn off resources that would disable critical infrastructure?

Why software
engineers hate cloud cost management

First-generation cloud cost management products were built to help finance teams produce reports, not to help engineers take action. They force people into unproductive, rearview-mirror conversations that end in countless follow-ups and delays. Meanwhile, costs go unchecked.

A solution, a hero

As former head of platform engineering at PayPal and eBay and self-proclaimed “recovering” engineer, Asim Razzaq founded Yotascale to create a new kind of cloud cost management product—one that empowers software engineers with the visibility and control to optimize their own cloud costs.

You see, Asim never believed in the excuse used to justify first-generation cloud cost management products: that engineers don’t—or shouldn’t—care about costs. They do care and should care, now more than ever.

Today, Yotascale is the go-to solution for some of the best engineering teams in the world. They’re taking active ownership of their cloud costs and collaborating effectively with finance, executive teams, and budget owners.

Before Yotascale

Engineers feel undervalued and untrusted to make the right decisions about their cloud usage. They are continually frustrated by an inefficient, manual cloud cost management process held hostage by finance.

After Yotascale

Engineers are empowered to make the best decisions at the best times to continually optimize costs. Finance and executive teams are always kept in the loop, so conversations about cloud can be more strategic and focused on what to build next.
