Cost Rules

The Cost Optimization Add-on has been deprecated for new Conformity users with effect from April 2020.

Trend Micro Cloud One™ – Conformity supports 72 cost rules for better management of AWS spend.

Cost rules focus on avoiding unnecessary costs and are founded on the "Cost Optimization" pillar of the AWS Well-Architected framework.
