  • OpenCost: OpenCost, the industry-supported open source cost monitoring standard that Kubecost is built on, has seen rapid momentum. OpenCost has been onboarded as a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Sandbox project. Adoption has quickly followed: the project has hundreds of thousands of downloads, 3,000+ GitHub stars, and 2,400+ members of the Kubecost Slack community. OpenCost integrates with tools such as AWS, Prometheus, and Vantage.

  • Amazon EKS: Kubecost is collaborating with AWS to deliver cost monitoring for Amazon EKS customers. Offered to all AWS customers without charge, Amazon EKS users can deploy an EKS-optimized bundle of Kubecost for cluster cost visibility and can receive Kubecost support from AWS as part of customers’ existing AWS support agreements. AWS customers can view Amazon EKS costs broken down by Kubernetes resources, including pods, nodes, namespaces, labels, and more. Customers can then provide their internal teams and business units with transparent and accurate cost data based on their actual AWS bill, and get customized recommendations for cost optimization based on their infrastructure environment and usage patterns within a single cluster. The Kubecost download numbers are available on the Amazon ECR Public Gallery.
