Azure offer reservations for Azure CosmosDB. Can we see and recommend CosmosDB reservations please?

Azure offers 65% discounts on COSMOS - this can save the customer a lot of money if properly managed. Turbo could help the client make the right decisions. Rightsize FIRST - then Recommend COSMOS RI SECOND

It would be desirable if multiple currencies could be handled by one Turbonomic

Currently, only one currency symbol can be set, so if AWS (USD) and Azure (Yen) are mixed, it will be confusing. Each time, we create a group just for AWS and refer to that dashboard, which is cumbersome.

Reserved Instance Coverage Graph should ALSO be about % of costs not just % of machine hours.

Management at this company are more interested in what % of VM costs are covered by RIs than the % of machine hours. While RI Coverage % by machine hours is useful - can we have a radio button to switch it to costs.

Turbonomic to exclude discovering Cancelled Subscriptions

Discovering Cancelled Subscriptions lead to get the data of resources which are not actually billing and will have false savings reported from the recommendations of its resources.

if a client has a special RI Discount % with Microsoft on top of the regular RI savings - that discount should be included under the effective cost column in the Discount Inventory Widget
