- Why Change?
No matter what your cloud cost goals are, everything else builds on how your cloud spend is organized. So when tags become a blocker, it’s impossible to make progress. CloudZero organizes spend better than anyone else — transforming your cost into accurate, business-relevant dimensions, even when your tags aren’t perfect.
CloudZero connects the dots between your product architecture and your cloud spend — giving you cloud cost intelligence that makes everyone smarter. Teams can have discussions around cost that lead to informed engineering, product, and business decisions that drives profitability for your company. What is cloud cost intelligence? Find out →
No. CloudZero uses a code-driven approach to organizing cloud spend. Similar to how engineers would define Infrastructure as Code, CloudZero enables teams to use a code artifact to define how they would like to organize their costs, providing them with flexibility, accuracy, and granularity — without having to tag every resource.
This allows organizations to align costs with meaningful business metrics, such as products, features, customers, and more — whether your tags are perfect or a total mess.
You can connect to the CloudZero platform in 10 minutes and start seeing value right away. While some special projects may require you to provide us with data, generally getting started requires very little effort.
From there, it only takes a few additional hours to uncover additional cost intelligence like unit cost, COGS, cost per customer, etc.

Unlike other cost tools, CloudZero doesn’t charge based on a percentage of your savings. CloudZero pricing is customer to your environment.
Why do we do this?
Cloud cost intelligence is about aligning cost to your business and stakeholders, so cost becomes a meaningful data point as you discuss cost tradeoffs throughout your entire product life cycle. Sure, we’ll help you identify waste — but that’s only a piece of it. You’ll also proactively save where it matters most — and unfortunately for us we can’t take a percentage of the money you never spend.
For qualified accounts, we do offer a 30-day free trial where you can experience the power and capabilities of CloudZero’s cost intelligence platform.
Yes. Many of our customers have replaced their cloud cost management tools with CloudZero’s platform.
On top of traditional cost optimization, CloudZero allows you to see costs in the metrics that matter most to your business — like unit cost, cost per customer, per feature, per product, COGS, and more.
Up to 90%.
CloudZero makes investigating cost quick and easy. Engineers can even investigate costs themselves and see the cost impact of their work.
Our customer, Validity, was able to cut down time spent managing cost by 90%. SeatGeek was able to save six to eight hours of investigation time per question about cost.
Simply put, CloudZero makes it easier to investigate, measure, and control cost.
CloudZero is more than a cost reduction tool. That being said, we have seen customers reduce their AWS bill by 25% or more. SaaS platform, Drift, was even able to reduce cloud costs by $2.4 million.
Unlike traditional cost management tools, which offer traditional customer success to get you onboarded and configured – CloudZero gives you a dedicated FinOps expert on demand. You’ll get a shared Slack channel, where you can ask questions and discuss priorities. Your expert will continuously monitor your cost for optimization opportunities and surface key insights.
It’s like having another member of your team — powered by the collective intelligence of every CloudZero customer.
