Over the last two years, we’ve seen rapid adoption of committed use discounts, and recently expanded support to include local SSDs, GPUs, and Cloud TPU Pods based on customer feedback. Now, with the Committed Use Discount Analysis report, you get even greater transparency into your usage and cost savings so that you can maximize your discounts and minimize the time spent managing your commitments.

Early adopters of the Committed Use Discount Analysis report are already seeing the benefits:

“With this tool, we better understand our historical usage of eligible compute resources and how that compares to our commitment levels. Our commitment utilization and coverage is automatically calculated, enabling us to know when to purchase more commitments so that we can maximize our discounts. This gives us a higher level of confidence in purchasing commitments, allowing our teams to invest more in the innovations that drive Etsy’s vision.” – Dany Daya, Senior Program Manager, Etsy
