With the new tool, Amazon Web Service customers can now find out even more easily where their S3 cloud object costs are incurred and how they can cut them. Amazon S3 Storage Lens, launched by AWS this week, is “the first cloud storage analytics solution to give you organization-wide visibility into object storage, with point-in-time metrics and trend lines as well as actionable recommendations,” AWS claimed in its news-blog.
One of our customers recently asked us to help him with an AWS Cloud Cost issue. His overall AWS bill was exploding over the last few weeks, without any adequate explanation of what could cause this drastic increase.
When we started to take a look, we quickly realized what the customer was referring to, the AWS Cost increased by 5x during August, by 10x in September, and October was already on the way to top this again.
