April in review: Dashboard drilldowns, tagging AWS EBS volumes, comparing EC2 instances
April marks Cloudability’s 5th year in the cloud cost management space. Our team would like to thank the community of employees, customers, advisors, friends, and family for all of the support in helping build Cloudability into the company it is today. Here’s to five more years!
We also had the great opportunity to speak at the AWS Summit: Sydney event. Our co-founder and Chief Customer Officer, J.R. Storment, presented the Science of Saving with AWS Reserved Instances to the attendees late this month.
Here are a few other highlights from the month.
Getting to the bottom of unexpected cloud cost spikes with Dashboard Drilldowns
No team wants to see spikes in their cloud cost billing data. But, if they do happen, Cloudability has the means for our users to get to the bottom of them. With a few clicks, users can dig deep into cloud billing anomalies to understand what’s going on at a granular level.
Don’t forget to tag the AWS EBS volumes
We see many customers diligently tagging AWS EC2 resources, but often neglecting or putting off tagging their EBS volumes. This is mainly due to the fact that it can be a challenge. Our Technical Account Management teammate, Andrew Midgley, walks through two solutions for tagging those elusive AWS EBS volumes. Check it out.
Need more compute or memory efficiency for your environment?
We explore the differences between the m4.large and c4.large EC2 instances from a cloud cost efficiency standpoint. Check out our deep dive to see how and why each instance type excels at either more memory, or more compute power for the money.
Improving our approach to cloud cost management as a team
As we gear up for the next five years of service, we welcome anyone interested in joining the team to get in touch. We’re still on the lookout for talented sales and technical account management staff, so please check out our jobs page if interested.
