Thanks to the CloudPouch application, monitoring AWS cloud costs has become part of my daily to-do list. Regular usage has allowed me to notice recurring patterns in generated costs and pinpoint problematic configurations. Ultimately, this has resulted in a reduction of AWS costs in the project by more than 50% on a monthly scale, and there are still visible anomalies, the removal of which will save even more.
I really like the tool. Yes, we can agree it is extension to AWS Billing, but it gives to us better view of our spendings. Definitely better. It is visual, it is interactive, very configurable. And most importantly, Cloudpouch supports us with costs optimization. For limited number of services, but I strongly believe, that more will come soon.
