Cloud Analytics

New Features

  • Introducing Billing Centers - showback costs across clouds using tags: Allocating cloud service usage costs to the right teams has always been difficult, especially when using many different cloud providers. Billing Centers in RightScale make this a simple task, allowing you to specify which tags and/or accounts should be allocated to which Billing Center(s). From there, you can create automated reports and alerts on the costs for each billing center and grant access to your users to view the data so they can track their usage throughout the month. This feature is available to all customers and requires the enterprise_manager or billing_center_admin role to create/edit billing centers, and the billing_center_viewer role to see billing centers and create reports from them. Get started with billing centers.

Cloud Analytics

New Features

  • Introducing new Cloud Analytics Role: You can now grant users access to only Cloud Analytics using the new ca_user role from Governance and Cloud Management Invite flow. The existing billing role has been removed and existing user privileges have been migrated, to this new role, so that no behavior is affected. The Billing Admin-only account setting, in Cloud Management, will no longer work and will be removed very soon.
