AWS Storage Gateway now allows you to tag your gateways, volumes, and virtual tapes. Tags are labels you can define and associate with your AWS resources, which provide filtering capabilities on operations such as generating AWS usage or cost reports. For example, you can use tags to allocate Storage Gateway costs and usage between departments in your organization. You can then view the Storage Gateway costs for a particular department over a period of time, or identify the department with the most Storage Gateway usage.

You can add or remove tags for your Storage Gateway resources by using the AWS Management Console or Storage Gateway APIs. To learn more about tagging support in Storage Gateway, please see Tagging Storage Gateway Resources in the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide.
