Proposal: Armory Harpoon for AWS Cost Management

Before we build a feature into our Enterprise distribution of Spinnaker, we ask current & prospective customers how valuable it would be for them. You can find all of our Proposed Features here.

We’ve been hearing from enterprise customers that over-provisioning cloud resources is the single biggest cause of waste in their cloud accounts. We’re proposing **Armory Harpoon**, an integration utilizing a system like CloudHealth to provide in-context notifications and actionability from within Spinnaker that reduces over-provisioning by:

  • Enforcing a company’s tagging standards on all AWS resources
  • Integrating with CloudHealth (and Cloudability, etc) to drive alerts on over-provisioning
  • Providing in-context notifications within Spinnaker to service owners when a service should be right-sized – and a link to review the proposed right-sizing action and approve it
  • Right-sizing server groups exceeding daily budgets

Here is a video demonstrating the system, with some screenshots below.
