Central governance and management across Amazon Web Services accounts
Amazon Organizations helps you centrally govern your environment as you grow and scale your workloads on Amazon Web Services. Whether you are a growing startup or a large enterprise, Organizations helps you to centrally manage billing and the organizational structure across your Amazon Web Services accounts.
Using Amazon Organizations, you can automate account creation, create groups of accounts to reflect your business needs, and apply tags to your accounts for categorization. You can also simplify billing by setting up a single payment method for all of your Amazon Web Services accounts. Amazon Organizations is available to all Amazon Web Services customers at no additional charge.
Automate Amazon Web Services account creation and management
You can use multiple Amazon Web Services accounts to provide natural security, access, and billing boundaries between your resources, and Amazon Organizations allows you to automate the creation of new Amazon Web Services accounts when you need to quickly launch new workloads. You can add these new accounts to user-defined groups in your organization for easy categorization. For example, you can create separate groups to categorize development and production accounts.
Consolidate billing across multiple Amazon Web Services accounts
You can use Amazon Organizations to set up a single payment method for all the Amazon Web Services accounts in your organization through consolidated billing. With consolidated billing, you can see a combined view of charges incurred by all your accounts, as well as take advantage of pricing benefits from aggregated usage, such as volume discounts for Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3.
Categorize accounts and resources with tags
As you set up an account structure in Amazon Organizations, you can assign tags such as "project", "cost center", or "environment" to Amazon Web Services accounts you create in your organization to make it easier for you to track your Amazon Web Services accounts and keep them organized."
