New Switch Family recommendations feature added to Sizing Recommendations

Sizing recommendations now include information about potential costs savings by switching to a different family, not just by switching to a different instance within the same family. (Sizing recommendations aren't based on switching generations yet.) Recommendations will currently always show a better price for your current memory and CPU usage, rather than a closer match to your utilization if it is more expensive.

 

These new family sizing recommendations apply to both AWS and Azure instances.

 

Sizing recommendations scope options include:

  • Show All (Default): Shows potential cost savings by switching either Family or Instance
  • Family Switch: Only shows potential cost savings by switching Family
  • Instance Switch: Only shows potential cost savings by switching Instance
