Amazon hones its cloud reporting tools

Amazon(s amzn) Web Services has launched two new interactive usage reports to help customers get a better grip on their use of EC2 resources and assess their costs. The reports can be accessed from the AWS Management Console. This will be good news for AWS customers but not so great for a handful of third-party companies with their own usage assessment tools, although most of them, like Rightscale, offer multi-cloud monitoring. It’s probably no coincidence that Cloudyn, which had focused on AWS, just added Google Compute Engine to the clouds it watches.
