Billing Centers

Billing centers provide a method to allocate costs into certain groups, or cost centers, which can then be analyzed and reported or alerted on. Users can create any number of billing centers, each one spanning multiple cloud vendors and accounts. The aggregated costs are rolled up into the associated billing center.

What are Billing Centers?

A billing center contains a collection of cloud charges which come from public cloud bills that have been connected to RightScale. Bill charges are associated with a billing center by creating allocation rules designating specific cloud accounts or cloud tags. Billing centers should be logically organized by cost center, department, project, etc., to separate cloud costs for costs analysis, showback, and/or chargeback.

Use billing centers to provide scheduled cost reports, implement budgets, and organize your cloud charges across all of your public cloud providers.

See the Optima Billing Centers Guide for more details on creating and using billing centers.
