Getting Started#

To get started using Vantage to explore your cloud infrastructure costs, you'll want to create a data integration between at least one of your providers and Vantage.

Connecting providers

Connecting Amazon Web Services (AWS)#

Vantage integrates with AWS via a cross-account IAM role. This gives Vantage read-only access to an organization's cost data. Once the role has been created and given the correct set of permissions, Vantage will begin syncing an organization's cost data and resource metadata. After the initial sync is complete, users will be able to take advantage of all of the features of the Vantage platform to manage, inspect and model their AWS spend.

Get started by creating a Vantage account and connecting an AWS account. The onboarding flow will guide you through connecting your AWS account to Vantage. Full documentation on connecting an AWS account, can be found here.

Connecting Microsoft Azure#

Vantage integrates with your Azure account through the use of a Active Directory Service Principal. This principal is then assigned access to either management groups or individual subscriptions. Any subscriptions that are part of a resource group will be automatically imported.

Connecting Google Cloud Platform (GCP)#

Vantage integrates with GCP via a service account. This gives Vantage read-only access to an organization's cost data. Once the role has been created and given the correct set of permissions, Vantage will begin syncing an organization's cost data and resource metadata. After the initial sync is complete, users will be able to take advantage of all of the features of the Vantage platform to manage, inspect and model their GCP spend.

Get started by creating a Vantage account and connecting a GCP billing account. The onboarding flow will guide you through connecting your GCP account to Vantage. Full documentation on connecting a GCP billing account can be found here.

Connecting Kubernetes#

Vantage recommends OpenCost as the preferred integration point for Kubernetes costs, but can also ingest metrics through AWS Container Insights.

Get started by creating a Vantage account and connecting a cloud provider account. The onboarding flow will guide you through creating the data integration to your cloud provider. Full documentation on getting started with Kubernetes can be found here.

Connecting Datadog#

Vantage integrates with your Datadog account through a read only Datadog OAuth token. The user which completes this OAuth flow will need access to the usage_read scope to complete the connection. Get started with Datadog costs here.

Connecting Snowflake#

Vantage integrates with your Snowflake account through a secure, read-only user that has access to Snowflake usage tables. Optionally, we have a recommendation for creating a dedicated schema which Vantage can pull from. Get started with Snowflake costs here.

Connecting Fastly#

Vantage integrates with your Fastly account through a read-only API token. Fastly API Tokens are free for you to create. Adding them to the Vantage console only takes a few minutes. Step by step instructions to connect Fastly can be found here.

Other Providers#

Vantage will be launching support for additional cloud infrastructure providers in the future. If you have a particular provider that you would like supported, please reach out to support@vantage.sh.
