And we’re back! One month into 2022, and while it’s generally agreed upon to avoid asking about resolutions, when it happens, we have a solid strategy.


That said, we’ve been hard at work so far! If you’re looking to study up on the cloud, our team has been on fire this month in generating some learnings and new concepts:

Improving Environmental Sustainability Through Cloud Migration - Derek Niece, our Partner Services Director, runs us through how the cloud contribute to the health of the planet

Planning a Pain-Free Cloud Migration - Interview with David Colebatch, CEO / Chief Migration Hacker, answering some burning questions around cloud migration

Discover Database Servers In 3 Steps - In case you thought the cloud was just about data centres, David Colebatch will broaden your horizons on what your migration might mean

Check out more of our blog posts any time.


Speaking of the team, we’re looking to add some more brilliant minds to our crew! If one of these sounds like your dream job, we’d love to hear from you:

If you’ve made it your business to bring your business to the cloud this year, join us on February 3rd, 2022 at 12:00pm ET for our newest webinar: Build Your Business Case - How Much Do Apps Cost On AWS?

Learn how to bring a fuller migration concept to your team with Jason Hurlbut and David Colebatch, our Chief Value Officer and Chief Migration Hacker.

Register with us to attend, and we’ll see you there.


Introducing Save On Clouds by Tidal

The best part of our year so far: introducing our newly-minted Intelligent Cloud Cost Optimization Platform, Saver!

If overall cost is the only thing stopping you from launching your business into the cloud this year, we’re here to take the headache out of the planning, whether you’re going with AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud.

Save On Clouds is provided free of charge to subscribers of the Pilot, Accelerator, or Enterprise plans of Tidal, and for non-subscribers, we’re also providing a limited version supporting up to 10 servers.

Manage your resources wisely and stop the waste - choose the right times to activate and shut down your operations!


  • Amazon’s DynamoDB — 10 years later - While some may think of the cloud solely as a place to run VMs, this month marked the 10th anniversary of the cloud-native scalable database: DynamoDB. This NoSQL database service is basically legacy!
  • Bringing human-centric security to everyone - And for some local news, hats off to our Toronto neighbours, 1Password, on completing the largest funding round in history for a Canadian company. This mighty team raised $620 million USD, valuing them at $6.8 billion. And putting money into keeping your data safe? Priceless.
  • Examining the covidtests.gov architecture - How did the US government build a service that scales for use by millions of users? The cloud of course! Take a look at this breakdown of the architecture of the site that is sending COVID tests to individual households—and looking quite promising at that!
  • Google Cloud to offer up to $100K in support for early-stage startups - While Google has been active at the enterprise level in recent years, they’re turning their focus back to being there for startups, which, in addition to providing a good amount of funding, includes their Google for Startups Cloud Program for those looking to get off the ground and into the cloud.
  • Three Cloud Trends to Watch in 2022 - DevOps shines a light on trends for this year that include the rise of alternative vendors, industry-specific cloud ecosystems, and a security focus on software supply chains in this to-the-point forecast. Keep ahead of the game!

That’s all for January, and if you’ve had a good time with us, let us know by sharing with the links below to keep your small talk game on point.

And if you missed us last month, catch up on our December Newsletter.

See you in February! (it’s a short month, we promise)
