Welcome everyone to the November edition of "What's New at Tailwarden." Join us as we delve into our updates, community highlights, and all things Tailwarden. In this edition, you'll discover the exciting new feature launches we've had this month.

Product updates


The highlight of the month is the introduction of OVHcloud support. Now, you can track all your OVHcloud infrastructure in a single dashboard, uncovering insights on cost, compliance, and security. Check out this video on integrating an OVHcloud with Komiser:

We’ve also enhanced the UI/UX of our dependency graph feature, allowing you to easily visualize your cloud infrastructure relationships and identify unused and vulnerable resources.

Here’s a video showcasing how the resource dependency graph works:


We've rolled out fantastic new features and improvements for streamlining your cloud cost and usage management:

  • Tailor alerts specifically to your cloud's unique structure. Set up notifications for custom views in your AWS and GCP resources. Get alerted instantly when costs or usage spike, enabling swift action. Custom views act as personal lenses into your cloud's world, fine-tuned for specific applications, teams, or projects.
  • Introducing tags audit at the cloud account level. Keep your tagging consistent with regular digests sent directly to your Slack or Email. Maintain an eagle's eye view on your tags coverage, ensuring your resources are always neatly organized and easily accessible.

We’ve also improved the cost explorer experience, providing a comprehensive view of cost insights across your multi-cloud infrastructure in one place. Check out the demo:

We also shipped tons of other bug fixes and performance tuning. See the full changelog.

In the coming weeks, our focus will be on:

  • Introducing cost reports for personalized financial team reporting.
  • Launching tagging policies for identifying non-compliant cloud resources.
  • Integrating AWS Cost Explorer API with Komiser for up to 6 months of cost history insights.
