December in review: New savings tools, new spending data

By Leah Weitz on December 29, 2015

2015 sure flew by! We capped things off with a bang this month—and so did AWS! Read on to see what’s new in Cloudability, and what we have to say about the latest Amazon updates.

Feature updates: Introducing the Reservation Portfolio for global RI management

This month saw the release of one of our most-requested features: the Reservation Portfolio!


The Reservation Portfolio provides a global view of all of your reservations across linked accounts, in one convenient location. The list is sortable and filterable, and perhaps more importantly, shows the expiration date of each reservation so that you don’t get any surprise drops in coverage. Read the full announcement here!

That’s not all we’ve released lately—check out our Knowledge Base for a full list of what’s new, including our updated CSV export process, new Dashboard tools, and more!
