September in review

Well, summer is officially over. Good thing Portlanders love sweater weather!

We spent the past month dusting off our rain boots and preparing for the biggest event in the industry: re:Invent. From re:Invent-themed blog posts to shiny new feature updates, saying we’ve been “busy” is putting it lightly. Read on to get a taste of what we’ve been up to—and stay tuned for what we’ll have to show you in Vegas!

Feature update: New Daily Email for more comprehensive cost monitoring

This month we were thrilled to introduce our new and improved Daily Cost Summary Email for more comprehensive and intuitive cost monitoring.

New Daily Email

This huge update to our Daily Cost Summary Email was more than just a makeover—now you can know the freshness of your cost data, choose how it’s calculated, and enjoy full mobile compatibility. Read the full announcement and check it out!

We made several other exciting updates this month including the GA release of our Microsoft Azure Enterprise Support. You can check out the full list of updates on our knowledge base.
