Overview of committed use discounts reports

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.


Committed use discounts (CUDs) are spend-based or resource-based discounts, depending on the Google Cloud service offering the discounts. When you purchase CUDs, you receive discounted prices in exchange for your commitment to use either a minimum level of resources or spend a minimum amount, for a specified term of one or three years. Upon purchase, you are billed a monthly fee for the duration of the term you selected, whether or not you use the services.


Analysis reports are available for your committed use discounts, depending on the type of commitment you purchase: spend-based or resource-based discounts.
