21+ DevOps Podcasts That Are Must-Listens For 2023

Check out these top DevOps podcasts to keep up with the latest and greatest from industry peers, influencers, and bleeding-edge brands.

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.

DevOps can be challenging because there aren’t standard approaches to it. Your DevOps approach can be vastly unique to your organization's needs, including the DevOps engineering talent and budget you have available.

This also means that it's easy to get caught up in doing your own thing and not knowing what others are doing out there that you can adopt. To help you keep up with DevOps developments, we’ve compiled this roundup of some of the best DevOps podcasts to listen to today.

The topics covered in these talks range from cloud infrastructure management to security strategies and productivity tips.

1. Cloud Atlas

cloud atlas

Biologically speaking, humans are a terrestrial species. But in terms of how we live, work, learn, and play, we’re really a cloud-native species. The cloud revolutionized human life. But outside the tech community, people have a limited understanding of what the cloud is.

In Cloud Atlas, CloudZero demystifies the cloud — including the story of the cloud, from prehistoric times (i.e., the 1990s) to the present day, where it came from, what it enabled, and how universally it’s used on a day-to-day, hour-to-hour, moment-to-moment basis.

Cloud Atlas includes interviews and stories from Allan Vermeulen (proposed S3, led the team who built it), Matt Round (former director of Amazon’s Personalization Department), Andy Jassy (former AWS CEO, current Amazon CEO), and more! Check out the podcast here.

What Next: Take Practical Steps To Optimize Your Cloud Spend

The more we talk to CTOs, FinOps professionals, and passionate DevOps engineers, the more we see their struggle to promote a cost-conscious culture among their technical staff. Many SaaS and technology companies are struggling to reduce cloud waste.

The most valuable DevOps engineers are those that treat cloud cost as a first-class metric.

By understanding how cloud spending impacts the bottom line and competitiveness of the entire organization, engineers can speak the same language as finance. Finance and engineers can then work together to maximize cloud value without spending millions on cloud providers.

CloudZero presents cloud cost insights in your engineers' language, helping you shift cost decisions left. Think granular and immediately actionable insights such as cost per product feature, customer, environment, project, dev team, Kubernetes cost analysis, and more.

That way, your technical team can tell how their architectural decisions, such as their choice of AWS instance types and sizes, impact your cloud costs. Your engineers also receive noise-free alerts about cost anomalies so they can prevent costly technical issues and decisions from going over your budget.
