AWS Billing Conductor Pricing
With AWS Billing Conductor, you only pay for the pro forma billing records you generate. AWS Billing Conductor gives you the ability to model your billing in a way that more closely matches your organizational structure while retaining the existing billing relationship you have with AWS. To achieve this alternative view of your billing data, the AWS Billing Conductor generates a second, pro forma version of your billing records, consistent with your desired account segmentation, rate management, and custom line items.
You pay for the hourly pro forma billing records generated, consistent with your billing group configuration. Your pro forma billing records represent the resources running in your account or set of accounts and your interactions with those resources on an hourly basis. Any custom line items created are free.
Free Tier Summary
Your first one-million pro forma billing records for your consolidated billing family are free each month. Afterwards, each additional pro forma billing record is $.00015, or $.15 per 1,000 records.
Consider a single-tenant management account managed by an enterprise customer. The enterprise customer has an external client they want to bill at public rates, irrespective of the reserved instance or savings plans they’ve purchased. As such, the enterprise customer places the three external client accounts into a billing group, recomputing $140,700.12 worth of billing records. The total number of resources running in all member accounts in the billing group is 10,350 and they are available for the entire billing period (31 days * 24 hours * 10,350 resources = 7,700,400 pro forma billing records).
The pro forma billing records generated would cost $1,005.06. (Price for 7,700,400 records generated minus 1,000,000 records covered from the perpetual free tier is 6,700,400 * .15/1000 records = $1,005.06.)
Consider a multi-tenant management account managed by an AWS solution provider. The solution provider places all 16 member accounts into their own billing group, as each end customer wants a view at the rates they’ve negotiated with the solution provider (e.g., 2% discount from the AWS on demand price for all services). The total amount of spend recomputed is $232,460.53. The total number of resources running in all member accounts in the billing groups is 5,894 and they are available for the entire billing period (31 days * 24 hours * 5,894 resources = 4,385,136 pro forma billing records).
The pro forma billing records generated would cost $507.77. (Price for 4,385,136 records generated minus 1,000,000 records covered from the perpetual free tier is 3,385,136 * .15/1000 records = $507.77.)
