CloudForecast’s focused daily AWS Cost Monitoring reports help busy engineering teams understand their AWS costs, rapidly respond to any overspends, and promote opportunities to save costs.
AWS Cost Explorer is too complicated, boring, robust, and un-targeted.
Weed out the noise, and surface areas that make the most impact when it comes to AWS cost management with CloudForecast’s focused reports. Get back to your core technical responsibilities as fast as possible.
AWS non-segmented data is hard to parse and nearly impossible to breakdown to share with cross-functional teams.
CloudForecast gives you the ability to filter your AWS cost by sub-accounts and/or TagKeys so each engineering team can handle their own AWS budgets and spending.
AWS Cost Explorer doesn't eliminate the investigative work needed to report overspend.
CloudForecast shows you exactly where your significant cost increases are, and where to take action so you prevent costly AWS bills and build “root cause analysis” to prevent this overspend from happening again.
Daily report that summarizes your overall cost and alerts you of any cost anomalies.
Deliver our Daily Cost Reports directly to your engineering team via Teams & Slack
Identify and know the exact reasons for cost increases in less than 30 seconds.
Monthly cost report designed for Finance and management teams.
Discover untagged AWS resources and ensure tagging compliance.
Visibility into idle and underutilized resources for cost saving opportunities.
Hi! 👋 We're Francois and Tony. We're good friends and the co-founders of CloudForecast. We met years ago as early employees at a Y Combinator startup that had a successful exit.
We saw a huge need for lean, focused reporting within AWS and we decided to band together and provide the perfect solution we wished we had while managing our own AWS spend.
We love being relentlessly helpful and building relationships with anyone that signs up. If you have any questions (or just want to say hi) reach out!
CloudForecast exists for one sole purpose: to bring peace of mind that your AWS spend is monitored.
Customer happiness is a huge component of our business and success.
No lengthy contracts. No percentage pricing. Just predictable monthly pricing that fits your needs.
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 7 day free trial with no Credit Card required or an extended 30 day free trial with a Credit Card.
Initial configuration should take less than 7 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com to setup a call with us.
