Amazon Web Services - Cost and Usage Extractor
Use the Amazon Web Services - Cost and Usage Extractor to collect the cost and usage data of the virtual machines (EC2 instances) that are provisioned in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. TrueSight Cloud Cost Control uses this resource usage and cost data to provide forecasting, simulated migration, and cost estimations.
This ETL works in conjunction with the Amazon Web Services - AWS API Extractor. The cost and usage data that is collected is associated with the entities and business services that the AWS API ETL collects.
