      Howdy Documentation Team,

      One of the items on my list is to improve our AWS messaging.  I have a blog post I wrote going out soon talking about Percona Support + AWS RDS, but I'd like to have some more technically focused content as well.  Currently PMM supports interacting with CloudWatch metrics and this aligns well with our goal for helping customers with performance.  I'd like to feature this in a blog post.  Our overall message we're trying to convey is "If you want to get the most out of AWS, hire the database operations and performance experts at Percona."  We need to focus on how we can help with performance in AWS because it equals raw dollars for customers.

      My intention here is the outcome of this is a blog article that is technically focused, somewhat tutorial-ish on how to use the feature, and is accessible for both a business and technical audience.  The objective would be that non-customers can use this to adopt PMM to understand their own performance hurdles, but that it will also act as a call to action for people who may be interested in getting services from Percona by showcasing our expertise and tools focus on AWS.

      You may also be able to reach out to Mykola Marzhan since he is giving a presentation at Percona Live Europe on a similar topic (PMM CloudWatch feature).
