Improving AWS Cloud Cost transparency and visibility while finding and fixing an S3 cost issue

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.
