Re: Cloud Native Credits Program
Great question, Matt. So far, we have the following plan that we intend to iterate upon, with your help hopefully :-).
1. Projects will request credits the same way they do now - via Service Desk
2. First priority will go to graduated projects
3. The sponsor can choose to allocate a percentage (looking at about 30% with some room for conversation) to a particular set of projects they care about
4. Projects will have access to @Hippie Hacker @Ihor Dvoretskyi and also a technical point of contact with SLA at the credit provider's for help utilizing the credits
@Hippie Hacker - can you add to the automation we are hoping to offer in terms of alerts on exceeded quotas and prow jobs and such?
@Matt Klein - I recognize these details are sparse. Goal is to get the credits in from the funders and then work with the projects to disburse. We are not in a hurry to get it perfect right away because we will learn as we work together. We faced a bit of a chicken and egg problem initially where we couldn't fully test out a process until credits came. That said, the Equinix metal program @Ihor Dvoretskyi runs has been a guiding light. Expect to hear more and get reached out to for guidance on how we operationalize this in the coming months.
Thank you so much!
