Chew on the Case Study
"CloudForecast's daily succinct email helps our team identify unnecessary spending by highlighting AWS spikes. These unexpected change in cost would otherwise go unnoticed for weeks."
Bruno Miranda
VP of Engineering, Doximity

James Avery
CEO, Kevel

David Kirk
Senior DevOps, ReviewTrackers
"CloudForecast has provided me a low friction method to stay on top of my AWS cloud spend. Helping me not only see that costs when up, but why and from where."
Dru Sellers
President and COO, One More Cloud
"The benefit 605 receives by not employing a cloud accountant on staff to go through this every day more than pays for the CloudForecast service cost."
Jared Williams
Director of DevOps, 605

SUCCINCT & USEFUL REPORTS

Get Impactful Insights in Your Inbox

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.

Save Your Brain AND Your Cash
TRANSPARENCY ACROSS TEAMS

View & Manage
AWS Costs by Team

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.

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.

We Built the Lean, Focused AWS Reporting Tool We Always Wanted 

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!

Skeptical Developers & Engineering Managers Have Asked…

How is this different from AWS Cost Explorer?

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.

Can't I just build this myself?

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.

Is my data safe with the permissions I am providing?

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.

How does the free trial work?
