In this video, work with AWS key-value metadata tags for service object identification and cost control.
- (instructor) A tool that Amazon provides…that can be key in cost management is object tagging.…So what is this?…The idea is that you're adding metadata…to AWS object instances.…And I'm going to make the example of…multiple EC2 virtual machines just to illustrate this.…You add the metadata as a case-sensitive key-value pair.…And an example, as I'm showing here on the slide,…would be we've got two EC2 instances,…and they each have an instance ID.…
And you can see that there's three tags for each one.…So the first one has a key of aws:createdBy,…and set equal to Root: and then it's the ARN…for the root I am user.…And then the next tag is user:Cost Center,…and we have just an internal number.…And the user stack is test.…And then you can see for the second instance,…we have the createdBy tag, which is the same thing.…The Cost Center is the same thing.…
But the user stack is Production.…So this is an important discipline…that I see missing more often than present.…And it affects, not only cost control,…but also security and compliance.…
