AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure are the most popular on-demand cloud computing platforms for technology teams. Once you provide your credit card information, you can forget about it. As your business grows, usage of CPUs and memory continues to increase.

Subscriptions can quickly run into hundreds — or even thousands — of dollars a month. The business is at risk of constant overspending.

How to avoid paying more than you expect for your cloud subscription?

Using virtual credit cards is the best way to stay on top of monthly subscription fees. Here's why:

  • It's important to create a dedicated virtual credit card for Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud separately. Each virtual card has a unique number and CVV code, so it's safer than traditional credit cards.
  • A specific monthly limit for each virtual credit card will help you avoid overspending.
