Datadog Cost Integration Savings Trackers: Potential Savings And Cost Avoidance New Analytics Filter: Top X Elements Search Within The “View” Dropdown Menu In Explorer

One of CloudZero’s overarching missions is to remove unnecessary work from engineering teams. Engineering teams are successful when they spend the majority of their time building new products and features — not fixing tags, not chasing down cost spikes, and not finding ways to account for surprise monthly bills.

That extends to the work they do within CloudZero. Our vision is for every engineer to use CloudZero as their go-to source for cost efficiency in the cloud. They’re most likely to do that if the platform is easy to deploy and navigate —and if its impact is easy to quantify.

This month’s release notes are all about ease and convenience. Take a look at what our product team accomplished in September, and stay tuned for more updates like these in the future!

New Analytics Filter: Top X Elements

CloudZero Analytics Filter

Introducing: A new filter in our Analytics feature allows you to dynamically focus on the elements with the biggest cost impact without losing sight of the total cost impact — resulting in cleaner visualizations.

You can use it to:

  • Focus a view on only the items with the biggest cost impact (all other items will get labeled as “other” for that view)
  • Define “X” as whatever number you want —and easily customize it for each view
