I recently did 2 meetup presentations about FinOps and AWS cost optimization.

to cover in order to keep AWS costs in control. While this is written especially for AWS,
the same ideas apply to Azure and GCP as well.
This post continues where S3 Data Loss Prevention with Encryption left. Using encryption

- Nice thing about holidays is there is more than usual spare time to tinker with things. I've been thinking adding a feedback form for this blog but that would require a backend to process the form.
