Vantage allows you to connect multiple cloud infrastructure provider accounts to the same Vantage account. This allows you to see all of your costs within a single cloud provider, like AWS, or across multiple cloud providers (e.g. GCP + Azure).
A Workspace is a way to segregate costs from individual account(s) within a provider, or across providers, into their own discrete dashboard. This allows teams to create more focused views of costs and even restrict access to costs by utilizing role-based access controls (RBAC) if they are subscribers of the Vantage Enterprise plan.
When your Vantage account is created you are assigned a "Default" workspace. You have the ability to create multiple workspaces. Each workspace is a logical grouping of cloud provider account(s) and has its own respective set of views.
Grouping resources together multiple cloud provider accounts: An organization sometimes has multiple accounts within the same cloud provider. Vantage users can use a single workspace to group multiple cloud provider accounts together to view all resources in the same view.
Grouping costs together across multiple cloud providers: An organization sometimes has multiple cloud providers (e.g. AWS + GCP). Vantage users can use a single workspace to group multiple cloud provider accounts together to view all resources in the same view.
Separate costs per environment: Organizations separate costs based on the environment that the resources in the account relate to. A workspace per environment; grouping all production, staging and development resources into separate workspaces.
Separate costs per team: Organizations separate costs based on the team that utilizes the resources in an account. Separate workspaces per team, e.g., infrastructure, product, security, etc.
Separate costs per product/service: Organizations separate costs based on the product or service that utilizes the resouces in an account. Separate workspaces per product/service, e.g., payment, console, admin
Separate costs per customer: Organizations separate costs based on customers. Separate workspaces per customer, e.g., Customer A, Customer B, Customer C, etc.
When you have more than one workspace in your Vantage account a workspace menu will appear in your navigation menu for you to switch between workspaces.
