The all-new Infracost Guardrails now enable you to approve and unblock pull requests (PRs) that were blocked by the budget guardrail. This month's release includes dynamic and org-level config files, which will help with repos that have multiple Terraform projects (e.g. mono repos or teragrunt repos). We have also added support for more AWS and Azure resources, taking our total coverage to over 1,000 Terraform resources! Additionally, you can now set the PR status for GitLab & Azure Repos to merged, and view PR histories in Infracost Cloud.

When considering cost optimization for the cloud, an equation can be used to structure the problem. Each component of the formula can be refined and delegated to the appropriate roles.

The formula is: Cloud Costs = Usage x Unit Price

We kicked-off 2023 by doubling down on helping companies optimize cloud costs by assisting engineers directly in CI/CD workflows.

We started tracking cost savings from Guardrails. We also made Infracost run faster for by only running on changed directories, caching modules, and running projects in parallel. On top of that, we made numerous bug fixes to make Terragrunt support more robust, and released support for single sign-on.

It's been a big month, with many new capabilities and features! You can now create Guardrails to control costs by monitoring pull requests and triggering actions when thresholds are exceeded. You can also use cost policies to scan your code repos for money saving opportunities (e.g. change gp2 to gp3 volume types) and create tasks to help engineering teams take action.

There's also Jira integration, README badges, custom reports, the ability to override the cloud region and lots of new resources.

In 2012, we built a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator for cloud. Companies could use our online calculator to design their desired cloud infrastructure, and our tool would calculate how much it would cost.

Now in 2022, 10 years later, we want to kill all cloud cost calculators 鈽狅笍
