Abstract: Many companies are in the process of migrating their entire IT infrastructure into the cloud in order to benefit from its high elasticity and scalability. While cloud providers offer basic cost visualizations such as line, bar or pie charts, companies lose track of which part of their infrastructure causes which costs. We adapt the city metaphor to visualize both the architecture and the costs. We offer a flexible framework to structure and tailor the visualization as desired. Using the Goal-Question-Metric approach, we identify cost savings potential and demonstrate for an example cloud infrastructure that the defined metrics are easier to grasp in our visualization compared to a standard cost dashboard.
