As one of the largest companies in the cloud computing space across the world, Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers dozens of services and processes billions of usage records.
often bundled with low-latency / real-time analysis to enable security and fraud detection.
AWS Bill Generation team manages the computation engine responsible for generating charges to the customers. Every time any AWS service meters a usage by a customer, a record makes its way to the our computation engine.
At the simplest level, the bill computation engine generates bill line items corresponding to usage. Every day the bill computation engine processes hundreds of millions of records.
The computation engine is architected to enable us to scale to this computational load and grow with the rapidly growing AWS business.
There are numerous highly varied scenarios that the bill computation engine handles : the common most one is that of tiering, i.
e. charging customers at different rates based on usage. These tiers may be computed across multiple dimensions : across geographical regions, across accounts, or across services.
One of the key goals of the bill computation engine is to build a highly scalable, general purpose multi-dimensional counter mechanism that enables us to support a very flexible set of pricing models.
Another key goal is to make the bill computation engine "declarative". We want to make it super easy for sellers of cloud services to create complex pricing plans with minimal or no code changes whatsoever.
