The dashboards in this section use data exclusively from the AWS Cost and Usage Report.

The AWS Cost & Usage Report (CUR) contains the most comprehensive set of AWS cost and usage data available, including additional metadata about AWS services, pricing, Reserved Instances, and Savings Plans. The CUR itemizes usage at the account or Organization level by product code, usage type and operation. These costs can be further organized by enabling Cost Allocation tags and Cost Categories.
