AWS Cost and Usage Report data is now available for easy and quick upload directly into Amazon Redshift and Amazon Quicksight.
AWS Cost and Usage Reports provide comprehensive data about your costs, including those related to product, pricing, and usage. The data allows you to analyze your costs in greater detail and also allows you to customize the report (e.g., include Resource IDs and view data at an hourly time level). Report creation is simple through our easy-to-use interface and starting today, you can use the same interface to enable your AWS Cost and Usage Reports for easy upload into your Amazon Redshift clusters and/or Amazon QuickSight.
To get started, navigate to the Reports page under the Billing and Cost Management console. You can find the steps for upload of your AWS Cost and Usage Report into Amazon Redshift at Uploading an AWS Cost and Usage Report to Amazon Redshift. Additionally, you can visually analyze your AWS Cost and Usage Report directly in Amazon Quicksight. Finally, you can learn more about what makes AWS Cost and Usage Reports unique in the billing details offered in the AWS Cost and Usage Report Details User Guide.
