Hello Everyone, I am new to Quicksight portal and currently exploring if we can leverage quicksight visualisation for our metrics dashboard.
Currently we are using Cloudwatch for our minerva metrics visualization (and few alarm setup). The cost to cloudwatch is high due to dynamic value of dimensions. Hence we are exploring S3 usage to reduce the cost and the quicksight as visualization dashboard. Minerva pushed the metrics in S3 bucket in json format.
- Can we use amazonBi account to connect with our S3 bucket or we need to create Enterprise account ?
- Files in S3 are gz files (compressed), will quicksight be able to extract it and read it ?
- Is there any other service we can leverage for alarm setup ?
- Regarding costing, apart from per user price ($5 max/month) and dashboarding price ($6.3/month), will there be any other cost that we need to consider ?
