Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides organizations with the option of consolidated billing, to unify data from separate accounts under one centralized payer account. Consolidated billing enables simplified operations for large organizations, while increasing the possibility of volume discounts.
However, with consolidation comes the responsibility of allocation; organizations with multiple accounts—departments, projects, customers, etc.—are faced with the challenge of enforcing accountability. For internal teams, budget allocation and forecasting can be a struggle; for Managed Service Providers, chargebacks and invoicing can be a nightmare.
The CloudCheckr platform offers tagging to help user manage their instances, images, and EC2 resources. In this webcast, learn how to leverage consolidated billing and tagging to improve efficiencies and reduce cloud costs. Attendees will learn:
- How consolidated billing helps to improve governance and save on volume purchasing for multiple cloud accounts
- Why tagging is critical to managing budgets, allocating costs, and enabling chargebacks
- What to consider when creating a tagging strategy
- How CloudCheckr helps automate billing processes across accounts
