CloudForecast's Story

Our experience come from building distributed systems and optimizing cost in AWS at high growth startups like TubeMogul (Adobe), adzerk, Twitter, Instacart, Perfect Audience and many others.

Before building CloudForecast, we all met as
co-workers at a Y Combinator ad-tech startup. We're still great friends and built this company out of our love of working together, solving tough problems, helping others, and making new friends.

Our Mission And Vision

We're building a different type of cloud monitoring business, one that focuses on our customers and not on our shareholders (we have none). At CloudForecast, we believe that every team in an organization should have access to the best spend analysis without breaking the budget.

We want your company to save money and we want to empower you to have all the tools you need to make informed decisions. AWS cost monitoring and staying within your budget shouldn't be hard or expensive. We're building tools to make cloud cost savings effortless for everyone in your organization.

Your company works hard for their margins. Why should you give a third party a big chunk of that if your goal is to save?

Meet The Founding Team

Francois Lagier

Francois is our CFO (Chief *French* Officer). He runs the tech side of CloudForecast with Kacy and always asks Tony for customer feedback.

When he is not building CloudForecast, you can find him running/biking around San Francisco or watching a Marseille (his hometown) soccer game. His latest passion: making and eating fresh pasta using the flour + water cookbook.

Tony Chan

Tony runs the business operations at CloudForecast: customer success, support, marketing, and sales.

Outside of work, Tony enjoys reading about Asian-American history, Asian cuisines, and visiting Chinatowns around the world. Raised in the south side of Chicago, he loves the White Sox, Da Bulls, Da Dears, Polish Sausages, Hot Dogs, and Mike Ditka.

Kacy Fortner

Kacy is a guru at saving money on AWS. So much so that you sometimes can find him suggesting ways to rebalance Reserved Instances to strangers on the bus.

You can often find him hanging out in parks with CloudForecast's Chief Security Officer, Charlie. He's also an avid homebrewer and fan of the best college basketball team in the world.
