Cost Management for AWS costs using Connector for AWS

Cost Management for AWS is charged at 1% of the total AWS managed spend. Every month, you will be charged 1% of your previous month's AWS costs under management. The charges will be pro-rated for the 1st month of service and will renew monthly at the beginning of each month. The service renews every month, and you may cancel subsequent renewals at any time. Accessing AWS APIs may incur additional costs.


  1. If you begin the service on Jan 10th, you will be charged 2/3rd of the 1% of January's AWS costs under management in February.
  2. If you cancel auto-renewal on April 15th, you will have continued service till April 30th, and the service will be cancelled starting May 1st. You will receive an invoice of 1% of your April AWS costs under management in May.

Connector for AWS will remain active after trial period ends if its auto-renew configuration was set to "on" during the initial setup. Otherwise the Connector for AWS will be disabled following its trial. It may remain in this state for 3 months before its permanently deleted. Once deleted the same connection cannot be reactivated. For assistance with a disabled Connector or to create a new connection post-deletion please contact our support team.
