In this video, learn how to consolidate multiple AWS accounting using the new AWS organizations service.
- [Instructor] One of the tools that Amazon has introduced…for controlling service costs…is something called Organizations.…This is pretty new.…It was introduced within the last 12 months…since the time of this recording.…So what does this mean, and how does it work?…Well, the idea is that an enterprise…or startup might have more than one Amazon account,…and the graphic on this slide shows you one example.…So the idea is you'd have an account maybe for development,…an account for testing or QA,…and an account for production.…
You could have staging.…There's various things.…Why you might choose to have separate Amazon accounts…for these various activities…is to create definite security boundaries…and cost-control boundaries between using services.…Now, that being said,…you may want to consolidate the charges from those accounts…so that it's easier to manage and control it.…And also, Amazon, like all the major cloud vendors,…gives you discounts for sustained usage…at really high levels of usage,…and you'd want to take advantage of that.…
