The AWS Cost & Usage Report contains the most comprehensive set of AWS cost and usage data available, including metadata about AWS services, pricing, and reservations. Starting today, you can view your normalized usage and normalization factor information for your Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS On-Demand instance usage, as well as for instance usage covered by Regional and Zonal Reserved Instances. These columns allow you to easily calculate your usage in normalized units, which can help you identify opportunities for savings.

Additionally, you can now access information related to the region and instance family associated with your usage line items. These columns allow you to group your cost and usage by a specific region (e.g., US East (Ohio)) or instance family (e.g., m4) to help you dive deeper into your underlying cost drivers and usage trends.
