Hey everyone, welcome to the November edition of “What’s new in Tailwarden” where we take you downstream to cover highlights of our change-log, community and anything Tailwarden related. Read on to learn about everything that launched this month.

Company updates:

“We need a new company name”... no other phrase creates as much fear and excitement amongst marketing professionals at the same time 😅 After being contacted by a bit tech company with a similar sounding name, we had no excuse but to create a new name and brand identity which would set the company apart from the tech industry and matches our vision.

Today we are incredibly pleased to introduce our new company name, Tailwarden.

Introducing our new company name
Why Tailwarden?

The name is a mixture between our mascot's most distinctive feature and the word "warden" which is the cloud protector and enabler that we aspire to be. The name change in the long run doesn’t really mean that much. Our mission is the same and we are still laser focused on delivering on our roadmap as quickly as possible.

Product updates

For the last two months, we have been working on a completely new version of Komiser: with all the learnings and feedback from our amazing users over the past months. And today we are announcing its release!

Komiser dashboard
Resource Inventory

This will provide you with an active resource inventory that allows to see all running cloud resources across your connected cloud accounts.

Tags management

Quickly identify any untagged or improperly tagged resources across multi-cloud accounts and cross regions using simple named operators. Additionally, you can add, display, update, and remove tag keys and value from cloud resources.


Easily search and discover your resources using built-in fields and metadata (such as Tags). From the search results, you can quickly navigate to the resources in the appropriate service console and take action.

Historical Data

Komiser now persists historical data in SQL databases (we currently support SQLite and Postgres), giving you the ability to write SQL-based queries to explore dynamic data and extend Komiser UI native capabilities.

We also shipped tons of others bugfixes and performance tuning. See full changelog.

What's coming up next
  • Custom views: A view serves as a virtual window through which the user can see the resources in the account. You can create multiple views, each presenting a different view of the larger picture.
  • Over the next few weeks we will work to fully stabilize the new release. After that, we will double down on new cloud providers support.
  • New cloud providers: Azure, OVH and Kubernetes coming up! Feel free to open an issue if you have other requests!

Community news & updates:

We hosted our 3rd Tailwarden Community Call, while this has become an end-of-month ritual for us, it's always great to share with our community our achievements and challenges over the past weeks.

In case you missed, here's a short recap:
