The CloudZero Difference

Why Traditional Cost Management Fails

Cloud costs have been accelerating uncontrollably for years. Why hasn’t traditional cost management worked — and how can companies evolve?

The Problem?

Cloud Costs Are Hard To Control, Predict, And Afford

Why haven’t incumbent cost management tools cracked the code?

Tagging Woes

87% of organizations use tagging as their main method of allocation — and on average, allocate just 75% of their cloud costs.

Shared Resources

Shared resources — like S3 buckets and Kubernetes clusters — can’t be tagged, leading to major blind spots.

Engineering Engagement

Without complete, accurate cost data, engineers can’t take cost management into their own hands.

Tagging Resources Engagement
Company Obstacles

These Obstacles And Others Lead To …

Wasted Money

When you don’t know what you’re spending money on, it’s impossible to make informed savings decisions.

Wasted Time

Teams spend hours on cost allocation and analysis, diverting resources away from differentiated innovation and strategy.

Departmental Misalignment

Finance and engineering teams speak different languages, and traditional cost management tools can’t translate.

The Solution

Cloud Cost Intelligence:
A Modern Approach

CloudZero is the first platform to put relevant, timely cost data at engineers’ fingertips, letting them proactively manage their cloud costs.

Crossing The Chasm:
Before And After
Cloud Cost Intelligence

Use Case



Cost Allocation

Wasting time and money on manual tagging

100% spend allocation, regardless of tagging quality


Segregated provider costs lead to low data quality and time wasted on manual analysis

Integrated provider costs to create a single source of truth for all cloud stakeholders

Kubernetes Visibility

Low visibility reduces data quality and increases risk of overspending

Elite visibility maximizes data quality and minimizes overspending risk

Cost Optimization

Focusing on better buying (RIs, SPs) doesn’t engage engineers, and has little impact on cloud efficiency

Giving engineers relevant, timely data enables them to build and manage cost-effective software

Unit Economics

Approximate metrics (e.g., average cost per customer) offer limited business impact

Precise unit metrics power high-impact business decisions

FinOps Partnership

One centralized team is accountable for all cloud cost goals

Cost accountability is decentralized to individual engineers

LawnStarter is building two new delivery teams to help us expand into new home care verticals. It’s a direct result of proving efficiency with CloudZero. It’s not just efficiency for its own sake — it’s helping us grow our business the way we want to.

Saved 10 hours a week on manual cost management activities

Cloud cost is now a very small portion of my day — and by very small, I mean I don’t have to think about it anymore. I always dreamed about a solution that could take me out of the picture, and that’s why we landed at CloudZero.

Used unit cost data to help sustain a -0.6% cloud spend growth rate

CloudZero [figures] heavily into our post-facto decision-making process. When we deploy a method of addressing customer needs, we can analyze how it impacted our AWS costs, and we can direct engineering resources at the issues with more accuracy.
