Get GCS cost per bucket


Google Cloud Storage (GCS) is object storage for companies of all sizes. You can use GCS to store any amount of data and retrieve it as often as you'd like.

DoiT Platform automatically identifies cloud cost issues, gives those insights to relevant teams, and delivers the context you need to get back on track.


This tutorial is intended for people who are somewhat familiar with Google Cloud Console and want to learn about the DoiT Platform. There are explanations for all of the actions in Google Cloud Console, but they may not explain everything needed for someone completely new to Google Cloud. There is no assumed knowledge about the DoiT Platform.
