3 days agoArlington, VA


We believe in changing how our customers be alerted on the actual and forecasted cloud cost.

Businesses and organizations need to plan and set expectations around cloud costs. However, the cloud agility requires customers to adapt the forecasting processes and tools to match the dynamic nature of customers usage. Set up custom budgets alerts and stay informed of how customer cost and usage progress and respond quickly when cost or usage exceeds threshold.

AWS Budgets Alerts allows customer to set alerts on cost and usage threshold based on actual or forecasted cost. Customers can choose to be alerted by email or SNS notification when the usage reach a certain user-defined percentage (%) thresholds on the budgeted amount. It integrates with multiple other AWS services to provide great customer experience.
