AWS Compute Optimizer now supports external performance metrics from 4 observability partners: Datadog, Dynatrace, Instana, and New Relic in 5 additional regions - Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Middle East (Bahrain), Africa (Cape Town), and Europe (Milan). 

With this launch, you can now configure AWS Compute Optimizer to ingest memory metrics for EC2 instances from any of the four partner platforms. After 30 hours, Compute Optimizer will begin to provide rightsizing recommendations that optimize memory capacity in addition to CPU, disk, network, IO, and throughput, unlocking additional savings and performance awareness. Memory metrics from CloudWatch will continue to be supported when external metrics are not present, and for customers without memory utilization metrics enabled, Compute Optimizer will continue to give rightsizing recommendations that do not reduce memory capacity.

You can configure the external metrics across any account or organization in AWS Compute Optimizer in a total of 21 AWS Regions. You can start using AWS Compute Optimizer through the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDK. For more information about AWS Compute Optimizer, please visit the homepage and the user guide.
