Managing public cloud resources in a dynamic, fast-growing environment can quickly get out-of-hand for even the most experienced user. Cloud cost structures can be opaque, and you may find it difficult to understand just where those costs are coming from. 

Often, unexpected cloud costs stem from underutilized or wasted resources lingering in your environment. But a lesser known method to uncovering unforeseen charges comes from keeping an eye on your data transfer costs. While you may know providers charge for data exiting their cloud, data transfer costs are commonly overlooked.
