Paigo calculates cost breakdown including fixed costs and variable costs. Variable costs are calculated based on designated infrastructure resources usage. For example, if a SaaS business provisions Kubernetes pods for each customer separately, and uses a shared load balancer for all customers, then Paigo identifies Kubernetes as variable costs, and load balancer usage as fixed costs. SaaS customers can select different variable cost categories such as compute, storage, archive or network. The explanation of each cost insight item is listed below.
