25 DevOps Memes That You Will Make You LOL

Here’s a dive at the lighter end of the cloud computing pool from a DevOps perspective. These 25 DevOps memes will have you rolling on the floor laughing.

Is your current cloud cost tool giving you the cost intelligence you need?  Most tools are manual, clunky, and inexact. Discover how CloudZero takes a new  approach to organizing your cloud spend.Click here to learn more.

What makes a room full of DevOps engineers laugh? The following DevOps memes and funny quotes — perhaps.

Cloud Cost Memes

1. Level your risk

cartoon characters talking

When Finance and Engineering work in silos, conversations can get a little awkward. Finance wants to cut costs no matter what. Engineering wants to provision resources for peak performance — oh, and level risks.

2. When technical debt catches up

cartoon characters

The cost of reworking, or shipping now and dealing with consequences later, doesn’t seem crucial until it is. Instead, help your engineers understand the cost impact of their technical decisions so they can build cost-effective solutions.

3. We can allocate all your cloud spend — not without retagging, though


Cost allocation tags can be a pain in the neck, especially at scale or when you need to merge with a team or company that has a different tagging system.

4. Caption this: When a surprise AWS bill smacks you in the face


5. Don’t you dare settle for just “fine”


DevOps Memes

6. Change my mind: Dev vs. Ops vs. DevOps

7. When you try to fix a bug in production, it sort of feels like this

8. When a DevOps engineer goes all the way from the get-go. Solid foundations are important, you know.


9. When you explain to a DevOps recruiter what full stack means — and they take it personally


10. What a successful career in DevOps does to your letter-writing knacks

before and after comparison

11. Who is an optimist? A person who sees a glass as half full. Who is a Site Reliability Engineer? The person who sees a glass as 99.99% full.

Glass filled with water

12. How the DevOps project started on Day 1 with the client, product manager, and team lead

Kubernetes Memes

Kubernetes exponentially became the go-to container orchestration platform. But Kubernetes can be daunting, especially at scale. These Kubernetes memes show why.

13. When they told you all you needed was a YAML file to master the Kubernetes deployment

cartoon characters

It is going to be easy, they said. But then you need to code to extend it.

14. Talk of running applications in containers on Kubernetes


15. Got 99 superpowers but running databases on Kubernetes reliably ain’t one of them

cartoon characters

16. Does this apply to every team that is yet to use a managed K8s platform?

Funny Tech Memes

17. Don’t you dare make a joke about Continuous Delivery

cartoon characters

18. It’s not just manual monitoring and infrastructure configuration

cartoon characters

If you transfer the same on-premises practices you’ve used before to the cloud, you are likely to have a problem. Instead, you want to leverage automation, continuous monitoring, and cloud-native architecture to achieve the promise of the cloud.

19. Moving to the cloud won’t solve every problem you’ve ever hadcartoon characters

But monitoring your cloud migration can improve your migration costs, security, and more.

20. When you thought you’ve fixed a major problem by lifting and shifting a legacy app to the cloud, but now you have a bunch of bugs, security issues, and runaway costs

Laugh All The Way Through Your Cloud Bill With CloudZero

CloudZero's cloud cost intelligence platform can help you manage costs at every stage of your DevOps lifecycle.

Our code-driven approach ensures you can accurately collect, enrich, analyze, and share unit cost insights in the language of your engineers, finance, and FinOps teams — all without manual tagging.

CloudZero works at any stage of your cloud journey and DevOps pipeline phase.

Whether you are tracking the cost of migrating a specific workload to the cloud or tracking the cost of supporting an individual product feature, customer, or tenant in a multi-tenant environment, CloudZero tracks it down to hourly granularity.

But don't just take our word for it. CloudZero customers, like Drift, already slashed $2.4 million off their annual cloud bill. SeatGeek can now measure its costs per customer. Remitly now allocates 50% more costs without endless tagging.
