How can I use tags to help me better monitor and organize my AWS infrastructure and resources?

Tags are words or phrases that act as metadata for organizing your AWS resources.

A tag is a key-value pair. In the Tag Editor, tag keys are represented as columns, and tag values are strings in the cells of a tag key column.

For instructions on using tags to create Resource Groups, which can help you visualize your AWS resources by project across regions and services, see What Are Resource Groups?

For information about how to use tags to organize and visualize your AWS billing, see Using Cost Allocation Tags.
