The reality is that cloud spend is filled with many hidden costs (as you’ve no doubt discovered or heard horror stories about). Ka-Ching! As your company grows and/or your product becomes more viral, so does your cloud bill - And these excessive cloud bills can be damaging - hindering innovation, limiting architectural decisions, and diverting critical $$ away from other areas needing investment. During this Meetup, Dawn will share her insights related to cloud spend, including:
How you can reduce egress fees
Whether multi-cloud architectures can reduce spend or increase it

With Cloudflare's Director of Product Management, Corey Mahan
Like AI, Zero Trust is one of those ‘cool’ techie terms that gets readily thrown around often by folks who don’t know what they’re talking about. As such, it can mean different things depending on your vantage point. Here’s an opportunity to clarify! If you missed the first go-around of this session, you're in luck! Corey's back to talk about how the principles, concepts, and ideas behind a Zero Trust world can be put into action, no matter where you are in your journey.
