Optima

Changes in Behavior

  • Cloud Analytics is in the process of being rebranded as Optima to align with our holistic cost management and optimization vision. You will see the new name being rolled out across the product as well as our docs site over the coming weeks.

  • Optima now shows AWS account names in addition to the account IDs to make it easy to identify and work with the accounts. In order to see the AWS account names, an additional IAM stanza must be added to the IAM policy for RightScale on your AWS parent account. You can find the complete policy details here.

    {
        "Effect": "Allow",
        "Action": [
            "organizations:Describe*",
            "organizations:List*"
        ],
        "Resource": "*"
    }

Cloud Management

New Features

  • Support for image families on Google so that a Multi-Cloud Image can point to the latest of a given image family on GCP instead of a specific version. Use latest images to avoid having the versioned image deprecated out from under your servers.
