Cloud usage and spend are expected to grow dramatically in the coming years as more organizations move to the cloud.
If you’re already in the cloud, or you’re thinking of elevating your business to it, it’s vital that you’re able to effectively monitor and manage your cloud billing, spend and usage to avoid surprises.
OnSpend by Onix™, a Google Cloud billing analytics tool, empowers you to efficiently and effectively manage the budget and billing processes associated with your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Google Maps Platform (GMP) accounts and projects by visualizing your usage costs.
You get an accurate visual representation of your GCP and GMP usage and spend across all your accounts and projects. Because you can set custom date ranges to view both usage and spend metrics on a daily or cumulative basis, you are in control of your cloud billing and budgets.
OnSpend allows you to create budgets at multiple levels and track your GCP and GMP spend against any given budget at any time. Unlike the Google Cloud Console, OnSpend provides budget tracking past 30 days and also gives you the option to set your time frame to reflect the duration of your purchase order. It also supports multiple purchase orders to make yearly budgeting easier.
You can use OnSpend’s forecast feature to understand future GCP and GMP spend based on past spending behaviors and patterns. This tool also gives you the intelligence to predict a budget's completion, which is determined by previous daily spend averages. It also allows the cloud billing administrator to set date ranges for customized analysis.
OnSpend's alert feature provides notifications for critical events related to a project at risk of a budget overrun. You can choose to receive notifications on a daily, weekly, monthly or purchase order basis.
