Improved visibility into AWS costs

nClouds has been there for our company since 2019. We trust their advice and asked them how we could improve our cost optimization. With consolidated billing, we’ve simplified our financial management, and we’re reaching discounts sooner because we’re combining the usage of the resources in all our AWS accounts.”

Challenge

Challenge:

Gain improved visibility into AWS costs and enhance cost optimization with AWS consolidated billing.

COVID-19 boosted companies’ focus on cost reduction strategies. Freebird Rides asked nClouds for a solution to help reduce expenses and gain improved visibility into AWS costs.

Why AWS and nClouds

In 2021, Freebird Rides asked nClouds for help with cost optimization. After analyzing their situation, nClouds introduced them to the consolidated billing feature in AWS Organizations.

Freebird Rides had an ongoing relationship with nClouds that began in 2019 when they asked nClouds to provide 24/7 Support Services for their compute workload running on an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) cluster.


Freebird Rides leverages Amazon Web Services:

  • AWS Organizations - Provides policy-based management for multiple AWS accounts.
  • Consolidated billing for AWS Organizations - A feature in AWS Organizations that enables Freebird Rides to consolidate billing and payment for multiple AWS accounts. nClouds provides the consolidated bill to Freebird Rides.
