What problem does Tim solve?

A large amount of cloud spend is wasted because things go wrong. This could be a cluster getting pinned, a GPU cluster left running over the long weekend, or because a small change or deployment led you to storing too much or using too much compute. Because Tim monitors spend anomalies in real-time, it alerts you and triggers a workflow for you to stop the bleeding days or weeks earlier.

Where does the name Tim come from?

Our company's name is Taloflow. We created a novel Infrastructure Monitor for your cloud. We decided to give the Taloflow Infrastructure Monitor a friendlier persona by naming the product Tim.

Are you an AWS Partner?

Taloflow is dedicated to providing the best possible services for cloud management and resource optimization on AWS. Taloflow has met all of the advanced technical requirements to become an Amazon Partner Network (APN) Advanced Technology Partner and undergone an architectural review of its platform by AWS Solution Architects.

Does Tim have an API?

Tim will allow you to programmatically trigger actions from an API so it fits in your DevOps workflow. However, this feature is still in early testing and you will need to request access by contacting us here: hi@taloflow.ai

Does Tim support Kubernetes monitoring?

Services running in a Kubernetes cluster are registered by name. If you use our logging, they can be tracked and given the same metrics as services outside Kubernetes on AWS. However, this feature is still in early testing and you will need to request access by contacting us here: hi@taloflow.ai

Is Tim secure?

We treat security seriously at Taloflow, and you can learn more about our security policies and methodologies here.

How does Tim compare against other tools?

While there are a bevy of tools that provide historical analysis of spend, there is no seamless product that holds everything together like Tim for cloud cost monitoring in real-time.
