Armando shows you how to
tag your AWS resources
into groups


I want to track usage and spending across different projects, cost centers, or development environments. How do I do that?

Tags are key-value pairs that allow you to organize your AWS resources into groups. You can use tags to:

Use logical groupings of your resources that make sense for your infrastructure or business. For example, you could organize your resources by:

  • Project
  • Cost center
  • Development environment
  • Application
  • Department

After you know what you want to tag, implement a new tagging strategy.
