Shift FinOps Left
Know the cost impact of cloud infrastructure changes before launching resources.
- Built into engineering and product workflows.
- Changes that break budgets trigger approval workflows.
- Ensures FinOps tags are applied correctly.
- Build FinOps best practices into your workflow (e.g., GP2 to GP3 volumes).
Engineers 💜 FinOps
How does it work?
Infracost installs directly into your GitHub or GitLab environments. When a change is opened (Pull Request), it creates an easy to understand cost estimate of the change as well as a detailed breakdown of all the resources. It’s like an automatic cloud cost calculator in engineering workflows.
It then checks the changes against your budgets, checks for the right tags, and best practice policies before enabling the merge.
Infracost checks all the code changes being made by engineers against your budgets, best practices, and your tagging policy. If a budget is going to be exceeded, Infracost informs the engineer and kicks off an approval workflow. It also informs the engineer of better infrastructure options during code-review (e.g. change GP2 volumes to GP3).
Infracost is used by over 3,000 companies from financial and insurance providers to the automotive industry. Many of the Fortune 2,000 are using Infracost to make FinOps proactive. Infracost supports your custom enterprise pricing. Infracost is SOC2 Type 2 certified.
We love what people are saying about Infracost
This tool aims to calculate costs impact based on a terraform change. An amazing addition for your SRE process if you want to keep your costs under control.
Infracost is an outstanding tool and a must have for every Terraform project. It’s great to see it grow!
DevOps and Cloud
Ha! Very cool. Estimating your aws costs from a terraform plan.
I love this code quality metric:
»infracost GitHub action […] automatically adds a pull request comment showing the cost estimate diff«
Thank you very much to @infracost team who implemented an awesome terragrunt report from feedbacks in Github. 🙂
Just discovered Infracost repo. Shows hourly and monthly cost estimates for a Terraform project. Can also be used to automatically add a PR comment showing the cost estimate diff 😍
