Graham Cluley Security News reported this week, SisdigThank you to the amazing team for your support!
This move to the cloud has made it easier for us to scale up our applications when we need more. However, this has a natural consequence.
You are probably overspending.
Estimating the cost of running an app is a matter of judgment. According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s FinOps For Kubernetes report, only 38% of developers can accurately predict cloud spending within 10% of him.
Without proper real-time monitoring of utilization information in your Kubernetes environment, you’ll never know where your cloud resources are being over-allocated or under-allocated. A recent Sysdig 2023 Cloud-Native Security and Usage report found that businesses of all sizes can be overspending, and for large deployments, overspending can cost him $10 million in cloud consumption bills. It has been found that it is possible to exceed
The same Sysdig report found that 59% of the containers had no CPU limit defined and 69% of the requested CPU resources were not used. Similar to fine-tuning utilization, underestimating the amount of CPU and memory a container needs will result in creating more containers in each cluster to meet the workload requirements. Each of these images will be added to the entire invoice.
To truly control your Kubernetes costs, you need a commercial solution like Sysdig Monitor. Sysdig Monitor provides deep Kubernetes visibility and everything out of the box to get you up and running in minutes with minimal configuration. Sysdig’s cost savings estimates are based on utilization metrics and help teams prioritize right-for-money efforts to save an average of 40% on cloud bills. Try Sysdig Monitor for free!
Looking for more information on cloud usage best practices? Let’s take a look at the key takeaways from Sysdig’s report. This report contains insights based on real-world data from billions of containers in global companies of all sizes and industries. The 6th annual report offers insights to reduce cloud costs by addressing unused Kubernetes resources, potentially saving millions of dollars.

- How businesses can save up to $10 million in cloud costs
- 87% of images contain advanced or critical vulnerabilities
- 90% of accounts have excessive privileges
Sysdig provides cloud and container security so you can stop attacks without wasting time. Detect threats in real time using ML, curated rules, and Sysdig Threat Research policies.
