Is there a leak in your ship?
The Need to Identify Unwanted Expenses on AWS
The complexity of AWS, unfortunately, results in the inability for most users to accurately monitor and track their AWS cloud costs. The lack of an effective cloud cost monitoring system open leads to users incurring increments in their costs with no means to identify such unnecessary expenditure.
Small Leaks Sink Big Ships
Unwanted expenses, if unnoticed, could quite possibly be catastrophic for companies using AWS who do not have a designated team that monitors spending on AWS on a regular basis.
This issue highlights the need for a feature like TrackIt Anomaly Detection that allows companies with sizable footprints on AWS to accurately identify and plug such ‘leaks’ in their budget.
Check our white paper and how this feature works so far.
