Fairwinds Insights Release Notes 10.2-10.6: Spotlight on Workload Cost Allocation

This month’s Fairwinds Insights release notes offer a number of bug fixes and also details of our latest enhancements to cost allocation functionality. Workload Cost Allocation allows Platform Engineering Managers to view the historical cost of a group of workloads and allocate spend to specific teams so companies can showback cost to stakeholders and identify areas for savings.

With the new Workload Cost Allocation feature, Platform Engineering Managers can use actual cloud spend and workload usage to understand historical costs incurred across multiple clusters, aggregations, and custom time periods.
