Introducing AWS EC2 Cost Analysis in TotalCloud: Gain Cloud Cost Visibility
Cost Analyzer, Product

AWS Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) is one of the most commonly used and popular services among all the AWS services. Generally, it accounts for the majority of the architecture in an organization, and it usually never works alone.

An architecture comprises of a number of services that are dependent on each other. So, several unique services can show up on your AWS bill, which makes it further difficult to understand what’s driving all the cloud cost.

A granular view of the spend is pivotal to understand Total Cloud Ownership. Due of this, it is critical to analyze EC2 usage and its spend breakdown by various dimensions like resource, instance type, services, states, and more, while also understand and optimize AWS costs.

TotalCloud’s AWS Cost Analysis provides better cloud cost visibility and helps AWS users understand their EC2 spend easily and efficiently across different services, all from a single view.
