AWS CloudWatch Billing Alerts

March 31st, 2017 Posted by Blog, DevOps, Tips 0 thoughts on “AWS CloudWatch Billing Alerts”

Amazon CloudWatch allows you to use your projected monthly bill as a metric for alerts and send you notification when it exceeds a specific amount.

Add a couple of dollar figures like $50/mo, $100/mo, $250/mo, $500/mo, and $1,000/mo

If you ever end up with a run away server or accidentally provision many servers instead of 1, you will be happy you set up billing alerts.

For the 5 minutes it will take you it can save you a lots of money! So do it now!
