Starting today, customers can create exports of their billing and cost management data with custom column selections and row filters using a SQL interface. Exports are delivered on a recurring basis to an Amazon S3 bucket for use with business intelligence or data analytics solutions. Customers can use Data Exports with the new Cost and Usage Report (CUR 2.0) table, which contains the same information as the pre-existing Cost and Usage Report, but with two new columns, a queryable nested data structure, and a fixed schema.
With Data Exports, customers can include only the cost and usage data stakeholders need to manage their cloud spend. The SQL interface for selecting columns enables customers to receive their exports with a consistent schema which facilitates reliable data ingestion. The CUR 2.0 table’s two new columns provide the AWS payer and usage account names and its queryable nested data structure reduces data sparsity. Even with these improvements, customers can create exports of CUR 2.0 that are fully compatible with their data pipelines processing CUR today.
Data Exports supports all AWS regions except AWS GovCloud (US) regions and China regions.
