AWS Cost Optimization Tool - CloudPouch (Desktop Application)
As a solution architect I was looking for Cost Optimization tool that will help me/my client to look insight of AWS Service usage and give me detail overview of instance and cost.
It should not be SaaS application as I don’t want to share my credential over web but an application which is more on my private system means it should be a desktop application where I can configure multiple accounts and monitor resource usage. Help me to use AWS resources optimum and cost effective to save money.
I found similar kind of tool which match our requirement – CloudPouch.
Feature which impressed me and can’t wait to use:
- It is a Desktop Application which is fully in your own control no need to save / share your credential over web.
- Fast and Easy to use – Installation is very simple just download from Github and install on your local machine / cloud env (available to support Linux, Macintosh, and Windows OS)
- Support Multiple AWS Account – On a same you can view multiple account by navigating to your account name. you can view graphical reports for different period and can filter as per region.
4.Easy to configure – You can setup your multiple account details in ~/.aws/profiles & ~/.aws/config file with least privilege to get access cost explorer
5.Best feature is that you can see insights of each service (Mouse hover) usage / cost and recommended optimization that save thousands of dollars in a very short duration as per your usage.
6.Cost Anomaly Detection – For all service costs are analyzed and an icon is displayed if any cost spike. Each spike is marked by a red triangle on a chart, so you know what triggered cost anomaly detection
Thanks #cloudpouch #PawelZubkiewicz for AWESOME tools.
