Cost Management Service
Optimize Cloud Spend and Enforce Chargeback Policies on Your Kubernetes Infrastructure
Get a consolidated view of all your Kubernetes cloud spend across clusters in AWS, Azure, and on-premise datacenters with fine-grained visibility and reporting for shared clusters.
Cost Automation, Standardization, and Governance Across your Fleet of Clusters and Applications
With Rafay, platform teams can define cost boundaries for each application team that shares a cluster and enforce showback or chargeback policies driven by FinOps teams.
Get an accurate picture of your cloud spend in real-time so that you can grow your Kubernetes footprint with confidence
Reduce wasted cloud spend by centralizing visibility for every cluster across multiple cloud accounts and vendors
Optimize your cloud budget by appropriately billing internal teams based on their resource consumption of a shared cluster
Use Rafay to Consolidate Cost Visibility for Every Cluster in your Fleet
Providing visibility into the cost structure for shared clusters would require the collection and aggregation of very granular resource utilization metrics, and this is beyond the scope of what cloud vendors provide with their cost reports. Rafay breaks down silos allowing teams to gain fine-grained cost visibility across an entire fleet of clusters no matter where they live or what cloud vendor they are hosted with.
Create Custom Dashboards to View Aggregated Cost Metrics and Predict Future Kubernetes Cloud Spend
Cost Overview dashboards provide visibility and insights into various metrics generated at the project, cluster, and namespace levels. Longer-term retention of historical cost information makes it possible to anticipate future expenses.
Create Chargeback Groups to Track and Bill Internal Teams Based on Resource Consumption
Every organization divides cloud resources differently. Rafay allows your team to create chargeback groups based on any logical grouping of resources. These groups can be created based on project, clusters, namespaces, or labels. Once a chargeback group is created, users can generate cost reports at their convenience.
