Easily manage your AWS spending and track your budget
So your company's IT moved to AWS...
Amazon Web Services (AWS) makes it easier to scale your IT infrastructure on-demand. But now, when you can actually consume an infinite amount of IT services, how do you make sure that you do not exceed your IT budget?
One option would be to wait for the upcoming monthly billing statement and look at the grand total. However, that might be too late - you may already be exceeding your budget by using excessive resources. To make things worse, you will keep paying for the excessive resource, until you are able to identify and deallocate it. That's why even relatively small budget exceptions may inflict large costs over time with on-demand spending.
What is CloudRows?
CloudRows delivers cost control for your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account. It enables you to be sure you are operating within your IT budget, and notifies you before a budget exception is about to occur.
The key functionality of the CloudRows service includes:
How CloudRows Works
CloudRows works by constantly monitoring your AWS activity logs in the background, and producing meaningful cost analytic reports. The key design goal for the CloudRows platform architecture was to provide a non-intrusive active monitoring solution.
What makes CloudRows different?
Unlike other active cost control solutions which require custom installation on each of your cloud servers, CloudRows operates nonintrusively by analyzing the native AWS activity logs that are generated by Amazon. These are the same logs that are used by Amazon to construct your monthly AWS billing statement. This approach features the following benefits:
No setup required / Zero footprint
CloudRows is a fully-hosted solution. You don't have to install anything in order to get started. Upon signup, CloudRows starts to monitor your AWS activity logs directly from Amazon. Additionally, Using CloudRows has no impact on your existing IT setup, since the AWS activity logs are analyzed and processed on the CloudRows server.
CloudRows delivers the peace of mind that you need to stay in budget with on-demand billing. With push-notifications, you can be sure that you will never be surprised by the AWS billing statement.
CloudRows can be deployed in various configurations, depending on your company's specific requirements:
