Working with Billing

Last updated on May 10, 2021

The Billing dashboard provides you with a useful visualization of your Hub subscription's consumption and usage.

  • The top half of the pane summarizes the total hourly usage of the subscription and a chart displaying the hourly usage for each date of the billing cycle, organized by bandwidth tiers.
  • The bottom half of the pane contains a detailed usage breakdown by Zones and Tiers.

Tip

The following definitions are useful for understanding usage data:

  • Regions: Geographical areas that cloud hosting providers use to house computing infrastructure.
  • Zones: Larger geographical groupings of Regions used for purposes of billing for data transfer between regions.
  • Tiers: A level or grouping of similar items to organize them. For example, bandwidth tiers, billing rate tiers, etc.
