Your busy engineering team deals with enough complexity. CloudForecast is a simple AWS cost monitoring tool that helps you understand your daily AWS costs, rapidly respond to overspends, and identify opportunities to save.
AWS Cost Explorer is too complicated, boring, and untargeted for most technical teams. DevOps managers.
CloudForecast's focused reports highlight the most important areas to address your AWS costs and usage — so you can get back to your core technical responsibilities.
AWS non-segmented data in Cost Explorer is hard to parse and nearly impossible to break down to share with cross-functional teams.
With CloudForecast, you can filter your AWS cost by sub-accounts and/or TagKeys. That means each engineering team can handle their own AWS budgets and spending.
AWS Cost Explorer doesn't eliminate the investigative work needed to report overspend. You're still going to waste a lot of time digging.
Not with CloudForecast. We show you exactly where your significant cost increases are, and where to take action. Now you can prevent costly AWS bills and build “root cause analysis” to prevent overspend from happening again.
Your daily report summarizes overall cost and alerts you of any cost anomalies.
Deliver our Daily Cost Reports directly to your engineering team via Teams & Slack.
Understand the exact reasons for cost increases in less than 30 seconds.
Send a monthly cost report especially designed for finance & management teams.
Discover untagged AWS resources and ensure tagging compliance.
Identify idle and underutilized resources for cost-saving opportunities.
Hi! 👋 Francois and Tony here, co-founders of CloudForecast. We met years ago as early employees at a Y Combinator startup that had a successful exit, and quickly became friends.
We both saw a huge need for succinct, meaningful reporting within AWS. So we decided to band together and built it ourselves, testing it as we went on our own AWS spend.
As bootstrapped founders, we love meeting and helping our customers. When our customers choose CloudForecast, they are betting on us as self-funded founders. Our promise to them is to bring them value and be relentlessly helpful through our product.
If you have any questions (or just want to say hi), reach out!
Without happy customers, we wouldn't exist. Both founders work in customer support every day.
CloudForecast exists for just one reason: to keep your AWS spend understandable and under control. We love hearing feature requests!
No lengthy contracts. No percentage pricing. Just predictable monthly pricing that fits your needs. (Oh, and a Free Forever plan if that’s what you need!)
CloudForecast is not meant to be a replacement for AWS Cost Explorer. However, our customers find Cost Explorer lacking in features and reporting that their whole organization needs.
It is difficult to rely on multiple stakeholders to log-in cost explorer, find the right views, enter in the filters, pull the right reports, figure out where anomalies are and be proactive about monitoring cost. It's a mind numbing process to do this everyday, which distracts teams from actual technical challenges.
Our proactive reporting is well-designed and thoughtful, so that it takes less than 30 seconds to understand your cost and anomalies. We only surface the important information that a team needs to help answer questions.
You can try if you have the time and engineering resources to build and maintain it! Companies that use CloudForecast do not have the that luxury or time to have their engineering resources tied up to building internal tooling.
The opportunity cost is high, which can take away precious engineering time and resources from building features that drive their organization forward. We make it easy for with an out-of-the-box solution that requires little engineering resources to get started.
Example: AWS makes changes to their CUR file format all the time without letting their users know about it. It often can be a surprise when this happens and time consuming to find and adjust to those changes.
We only need read-only access to your S3 billing bucket. Our app does not have the ability to make changes to your AWS account. All of our data and credentials are encrypted using the AES encryption algorithm with a 256-bit key. Our AWS data centers have achieved ISO 27001 certification, PCI DSS Level 1 compliance, and SAS70 Type II.
We provide a 30 day free trial with no Credit Card required!
Initial configuration should take less than 4 minutes. We also provide free personal assistance via screen share for all new sign ups. You should receive your first AWS cost report within 24 hours. If you have any issues, you can always email us at email@example.com. We're here to help!
We charge on a recurring monthly basis. Our Hacker Plan is $99/month and our Growth Plan is $299/month.
Yes! This is something we can accommodate and help with our Enterprise Plan. We would love to hear your requirements and what you are looking for. Please reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org to setup a call with us.
