We are excited to announce the launch of our new logo and website. We want to share with you the rationale behind the updates, and what they represent for Compute Software and our community.
In December, AWS announced the release of their new g4ad and c6gn instances. We have added support for these new EC2 instances.
All other previously released instance families and instance types are currently supported in our pricing calculations and recommendations.
We have improved the filtering experience from the Views -> Filters. You may now collapse categories and search for items within Filter categories.
We have also added additional Filter categories - AWS Account, AWS Platform, and Tags - to help you more easily find action items and resources.
You can now view AWS Tenancy, AWS Availability Zone, AWS Platform, CPU Architecture, and the Tags associated with an instance from the action item overlay.
Over the last few months, we’ve made many exciting changes to the Compute Software platform. In order to provide you with the newest features and enhanced organization and access management controls, we have updated our authentication service.
You may continue to login to the Compute Software application at app.computesoftware.com. Current users should have received an “action required” email to reset their password. If not, you may choose the Reset Password option from the login page to reset your password.
The Effective Price calculation now includes AWS Reserved Instances for RHEL, Windows Server, Windows Server with SQL Standard, Windows Server with SQL Server Web, and SUSE.
The Current Effective Cloud Cost and Ideal Effective Cloud Cost metrics can be expanded to view their breakdowns.
We previously treated AWS Windows Reserved Instances (RIs) as applicable to any size in an instance family. That incorrectly affected the Effective Price calculation. Windows RIs are now restricted to the exact size you purchased.
The Instances table CSV export from the Views -> Action Items tab now includes these columns: Current Effective Provider Cost, Current Performance Cost, Optimal Effective Provider Cost, and Optimal Performance Cost.
The EBS and RDS tables from the Views -> Action Items tab are now sortable.
Previously, you had to select specific AWS regions for each of your Monitored Accounts. Now, all AWS regions are automatically fetched for data.
