The advent of the cloud introduced a new form of technical debt in which organizations can lose track of what infrastructure they have and how it relates to the business. While the cloud’s native APIs offer some transparency into your infrastructure, these offerings are often described as necessary but not sufficient. When companies have a non-trivial question about their environments, getting answers can have a big cognitive overhead to get a clear answer.
In this episode, I interview Tyson Kunovsky, Co-Founder and CEO at AutoCloud, creators of the open source project Cloud Graph. CloudGraph is a free and open source GraphQL API for AWS, Azure, GCP, and Kubernetes. CloudGraph provides a much more intuitive graphQL based interface to ask questions about your infrastructure in context of the relationships between components.
