Welcome to the May edition of "What's New at Tailwarden." In this post, we’ll explore our latest updates, community highlights, and everything new at Tailwarden. This month, we’ve introduced some exciting features that we’re eager to share with you.


BigQuery Cost Analysis

We’ve added a new feature to help you dive deep into your GCP costs by analyzing BigQuery queries. You can now pinpoint which SQL query is affecting your GCP bill the most. Break down costs by table, dataset, or even by the user who ran the query.

AWS Dashboards with Ready-to-Use Templates

Monitor the most expensive AWS services using our new templates, crafted from AWS cost best practices. Track costs across Compute, Storage, Network, and Invoice categories. Our widget builder now allows grouping data differently and breaking down AWS Data Transfer by service or resource. Plus, we’ve made the custom dashboard layout more flexible and fixed bugs affecting certain filters.

Advanced Cost Report Filters

Analyze your cloud costs across AWS, GCP, and Azure with advanced filters. This feature lets you break down and examine your expenses through various dimensions, providing deeper insights and better cost management.

Expanded Inventory Support for AWS Services

Our inventory now supports additional AWS services, including Athena, AppStream, VPC Endpoint, AWS Transfer, FSX, Detective, Nat Gateway, Route53 Hosted Zones, DirectConnect Connections, VPN Connections, Workspaces, Security Hub, RDS Snapshot, QuickSight Dashboard, KMS, VPC Flow Logs, ECR Repositories, Secret Manager, Glue Crawler, Kinesis Firehose, and WAF v2. Track resources created by these services across all your AWS accounts and regions.
