Driving AWS Cost Reduction… What to Look for

This is an online meeting:

If you have not already please sign up for AWS Community Day (ACD)


If you have ever been responsible for a public cloud account that is at least moderately large (> $50k/month) and frequently changing, you will know from experience that managing public cloud costs can be a nightmare. Orphaned servers, services, disk, and other resources can sit around for long periods of time without anyone noticing. Instances can be over-resourced. There can be missed opportunities for reserving instances. It is ridiculously easy for a well-intentioned systems administrator to make one bad configuration (such as overloading IOPS on a disk) and cost a company thousands of dollars in days.

The purpose of this session is to arm attendees with immediately usable, high-value best practices for controlling AWS costs.

• Leveraging Well-Architected Framework to identity cost inefficiency
• The low hanging fruit – what are the low risk targets?
• Removing Idle services
• Service Optimization
