Amazon CloudWatch announces usability improvements to the CloudWatch Logs Console. The Logs Console now gives customers the ability to share the state of their log sessions with their teams to facilitate collaboration when troubleshooting issues. Sharing is done via human readable URLs that include timestamp and search parameters. In addition, customers can narrow down their log search to specific time frames with just one click. The Logs Console now supports infinite scrolling, allowing customers to navigate large volumes of log data without pagination. It also improves readability of log data through additional display formatting options.

Today, we are excited to announce hourly pricing for Amazon WorkSpaces, providing you the flexibility to pay for your desktops either monthly or hourly. Hourly pricing can help you save money on your AWS bill when your users only need part-time access to their Amazon WorkSpaces. With hourly billing you pay a small fixed monthly fee per Amazon WorkSpace to cover infrastructure costs and storage, and a low hourly rate for each hour your Amazon WorkSpaces are running and available for use, or undergoing maintenance. When your Amazon WorkSpaces are not being used, they automatically stop after a specified period of inactivity, and hourly charges are suspended.
