AWS offers over 200 services as part of its IaaS platform, and that number continues to grow. Organizing all of these services, and tracking the costs they incur, can be a significant challenge, often requiring teams of AWS-certified sysadmins working together to get a handle on an enterprise-scale system.
Vantage provides an alternative, streamlined AWS console that makes it easier to manage AWS services and track associated costs. Users link their AWS account to Vantage, and it automatically profiles all their services and aggregates the information into a dashboard. Users can customize how their Vantage console appears and allows users to break down service usage by region.
Ben Schaechter is the co-founder of Vantage. Before founding Vantage he was a Senior Product Manager at AWS and DigitalOcean. Ben joins the show today to talk about how Vantage helps streamline the AWS experience, and why teams of all sizes can benefit from a better user experience on the AWS platform.
