Our AWS Managed Billing service instantly lowers your AWS bill by giving you access to lower rates on key AWS services. By leveraging our powerful cost management and account optimization tools, you can proactively manage your AWS costs to achieve even greater savings and control.
By leveraging the combined usage of all of our clients, we give you instant access to lower rates on services that have tiered pricing discounts such as CloudFront, S3, Data Transfer, Support, and more.
See unused resources that could be trimmed from your bill (such as unattached EBS volumes), servers that are over-sized, and detailed recommendations for purchasing Reserved Instances (RI).
All of our tools are self-service and available 24×7, but sometimes it’s nice to ask an expert. We provide free access to our team of AWS Billing PhD’s to help you navigate your bill, use our cost optimization portal, and purchase RI’s.
Don’t wait until you get your next bill to learn your spending has changed dramatically. Set up proactive cost alerts so you can be alerted the first day there is a spike in your spending.
Use our interactive charts and reports to understand 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.
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.
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.
