Kion comes with many out-of-the-box savings opportunities. These rightsizing and decommissioning opportunities are available through System Settings->Savings Opportunities in Kion.

You can also write your own custom savings opportunity checks to report on essentially any metric of interest. While you can start from scratch to create these, you can also get a ‘leg up’ on creating these by leveraging our database.

Our database includes Cloud Custodian policies, which also power our compliance engine. You can query and filter these policies to, for example, see EC2 instances with an average utilization of 10% or less. Then, copy the results and paste into your favorite text editor, and modify to meet your needs.

Check out the video to get complete details on how you can create custom checks for savings opportunities. And here’s more information on the savings opportunities included within Kion.
