Starting now, AWS Cost Explorer and Cost and Usage Reports (CURs) provide more granular and detailed billing of Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) charges. Additional detail is reported for Amazon RDS Backups and General Purpose, Provisioned IOPS, and Magnetic Storage volumes that are provisioned in Amazon RDS for MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and SQL Server database instances. Your bill will contain a detailed break down of costs by database engine for the above Amazon RDS resources and features.

In AWS Cost Explorer, you can use this itemized billing data to configure granular views and more accurately quantify your spend per different Amazon RDS database types. AWS CURs will also contain the breakdown of costs by Amazon RDS database types, so you can publish more granular reports to your Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. Starting today, your monthly bills and AWS CURs will feature itemized billing across all AWS regions. You can get started by visiting AWS Billing user guide or logging into AWS Billing & Cost Management Dashboard.
