Appvia announced a new feature that allows users to manage cloud spending with the Kore Cost prediction and visibility tool. 

With the new solution, engineering teams are also able to see cost implications across different cloud providers and reusable cloud templates (plans), and immediately see how altering node pool sizes and instances would change these costs. 

“This helps stop project costs from spiraling out of control in early stage development so that you can embed a cost-first development approach and budget for the right size infrastructure from the get-go,” Appvia wrote in a post.

TriggerMesh announces integration with Amazon Event Bridge
TriggerMesh added an integration with Amazon EventBridge that allows users to connect virtually any non-AWS event source with AWS EventBridge.
