Our AWS Managed Billing service gives you insight into your AWS spending, helping you make sense of your AWS usage and lower your costs.
Understand your Bill – We give you access to interactive charts and reports that show you exactly what you have running in AWS, how much it is costing you, which projects or departments are consuming the most resources, and how your usage is trending over time.
Get Lower Rates – By leveraging the combined usage of all of our clients, we give you access to lower rates on services that have tiered pricing discounts such as CloudFront, S3, Data Transfer, RI costs, and more.
Monitor Best Practices – As an added bonus, we show you the current status of over 500 best practices for your account that we check on a daily basis. The best practices are broken down into the following categories: Security, Cost, Availability, Usage, and AWS Trusted Advisor.
Optimize your Costs – We provide on-demand cost optimization analysis for your account. You get access to our web-based portal where you can see unused resources that could be trimmed from your bill, servers that are over-sized, and detailed recommendations for purchasing Reserved Instances (RI).
Frequently Asked Questions
- Your AWS hosting invoice will come from Privo, not AWS. Joining our AWS Managed Billing service triggers an accounting change in AWS, joining you to our consolidated bill which includes the combined usage of all of our customers. It's like joining a buyers club. This allows all customers using the service to enjoy lower rates on tiered services such as S3, Data Transfer, CloudFront, and Support.
- Your Account will be Upgraded to Business Premium Support. All customers that join the AWS Managed Billing service are automatically upgraded to Business Premium Support. With the combined volume of our many customers using this service, we have now achieved the highest discount tier for Business Premium Support--3%--which is the rate we pass on to new customers. If you previously did not have access to AWS Support, you will get access to this incredible resource at a deep discount. If you previously paid for Developer Support, you will get a free upgrade to Business Premium Support. If you previously paid for Business Premium Support on your own, you will enjoy a significant reduction in your AWS Support costs.
- Your AWS account will join the Privo "Organization". Consolidated billing is a feature of AWS "Organizations" which can be found in your AWS console. While there are other account changes that can be implemented via Organizations (using "Service Control Policies (SCPs)"), the Privo Organization does not implement any changes and never will.
- The "Bills" and "Cost Explorer" sections of the AWS console will be replaced with the CloudCheckr cost management portal. As part of this service, Privo provides free access to the CloudCheckr cost management portal, replacing the limited functionality of the "Bills" and "Cost Explorer" sections of your AWS console. CloudCheckr is an incredibly powerful cost management system and it is one of the primary benefits of this service.
