Join Pete and Jesse as they continue their examination of a new AWS offering: AWS Cost Anomaly Detection.

The Cloud is Not Just Another Data Center (Whiteboard Confessional)
Join Pete Cheslock and Jesse DeRose as they take the reins of the Whiteboard Confessional podcast with an episode that explores how people treat the cloud as another data center and why that’s absolutely something you should not do. They discuss the differences between the cloud-native, cloud-agnostic, and hybrid-cloud models, why Pete believes not a lot of people are running across multiple cloud providers, why engineers love the cloud and why finance hates it, the hidden costs associated with running EC2 instances, how vendor lock-in is more or less unavoidable, and more.

Irreverent and Essentail
Let’s face it: AWS changes fast, and there’s much to keep up with. I mean, how many new useless Chime features can there be in a month?
Choose Corey Quinn’s laugh-out-loud AWS morning brief as a way to soak it all such that it cuts through the BS quickly.
Corey loves to wrangle Amazon
Holy cow, this is an informative and funny podcast; and I listen with glee every week as Corey screws Amazon with their pants on.
Corey cannot spell
I spent a week looking for the “Last Week in A. W.S” until I realized that this podcast was incorrectly named. 10/10 would search again.
