Cloud Cost Allocation and Reporting

Allocate Cloud Costs

Cloud bills are complex. It can be difficult to account for which costs should be allocated to which business units or cost centers. You also need to take into account your negotiated discounts with each cloud provider and any overhead charges from internal services groups. RightScale Optima gets the right costs in the right place.
