An Open Source Tool to analyze wasted EBS capacity in your AWS environment

While AWS CloudWatch provides many useful storage statistics by default, such as the number of bytes written or read during a period of time, reads/writes per second, etc. a common metric customers want to know about is disk utilization. How much of EBS provisioned capacity is unused, resulting in wasted spending, is a question asked often.
As it’s very difficult to know how much storage an application will need over its lifetime, most people tend to over-provision their storage as an insurance policy.  In the AWS cloud, however, you pay for what you provision, not for what you actually use.  While we at FittedCloud solve this problem with our EBS Optimizer (which automatically and transparently provisions storage capacity for you) you may just want to simply know how much EBS space you are actually using.  Having this knowledge at your fingertips is helpful for cloud cost monitoring and cloud cost optimization.

Launch HN: Rhythmm (YC W18) – Create channels and broadcast them to an audience

Hi HN,We’re Zach and George — the creators of Rhythmm (https://getrhythmm.com).We want to bring back the blog, a page that you can do whatever you want with. A place where you — either by yourself or with a few friends — can broadcast to an audience. With a few friends, it reads like a conversation.A few months ago, we wanted to create a music blog together. We started to look at our options for creating a music blog, and realized that there weren’t any good ones. We didn’t want to create our own website, because people would have to remember to visit our domain and wouldn’t get notified when we posted. We looked at other music blogs on the internet, but it seemed like most of them were dying or have already died. We wanted a place where we could both share and bounce music off each other, and have
