About STAX

Stax is an AWS spending management and visualization platform which enables users to visualize their Amazon Web Services to help improve cloud quality, mitigate risk, reduce spending, and solve security issues. The holistic management platform allows users to create rule sets for the entire organization, or specific teams, and stay on top of issues as they evolve. Smart recommendations empower organizations from the CTO to developer teams.

Stax helps organizations answer important questions about cost while keeping an eye on their spend in the Amazon cloud. Users can see the costs of the entire business structure in a single click by creating custom views of data, and generate reports by service, app, team, tag, and more. Wildcard searches allow users to allocate multiple tag values such as cost-centre, environment, or team. Tools for budgeting enable the allocation of monthly and annual budgets across the business infrastructure complete with alerts on overspend.

Organizations can get the visibility they need in order to optimize their AWS spend and reduce cloud wastage through Stax’s comprehensive wastage analysis. The solution looks across all the dimensions of wastage by scanning all apps, teams and AWS services within environment, and provides personalized recommendations. Users can view real-time wastage status and compare data with previous months to track progress, as well as download data to CSV reports.

Stax allows users to configure custom business compliance rule sets for automated assessments which constantly scan all AWS deployments, enabling the reporting of compliance status to key stakeholders. Users can keep track of PCI or CIS benchmarks and get email alerts if a compliant rule becomes non-compliant.
