AWS Compute Optimizer now supports the ability to filter your rightsizing recommendations by tags. This includes tag keys, tag key and value pairs, or combinations of both. Tag filtering will be available on these rightsizing recommendations pages: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance types, Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, AWS Lambda functions, and Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) services on AWS Fargate.

With today’s launch, you can now filter the recommendations you see in the Compute Optimizer console by tags, or tag key:value pairs. Previously you had to export your recommendations or access them via API and filter them via name, region, the finding reason code (e.g. EC2 finding reasons), or join them with external data. By filtering on commonly used tags for cost allocation or operational management purposes, such as business unit, or environment, you can easily identify rightsizing opportunities that fit your requirements.

This feature is available in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), and South America (São Paulo) Regions at no additional charge.
