It is critical to identify idle resources and to understand why any services and assets within your AWS environment are no longer in use.
Make sure that all AWS computing resources are correctly configured to deliver the performance and services you need.
Amazon continually upgrades instances, and with each upgrade the price decreases and performance improves. Make sure you get the best performance at the lowest price.
RIs allow you to prepay for AWS resources at a lower price. Knowing how much you’ll need, and when, are both critical to getting the best deal.
Amazon offers different levels of storage services at different prices. The right storage strategy can save money and ensure availability.
Understanding where and how you are distributing your content to end users can have a huge impact on storage and distribution costs.
Use the Amazon Elastic Cloud (EC2) to build an elastic environment that scales, ensuring application availability, and expanding and reducing resources as needed to optimize costs.
AWS Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. You pay only for the compute time you consume – there is no charge when your code is not running.
AWS allows you to bid on excess capacity, often at a deep discount, saving up to 90 percent off an instance. This is ideal for major batch loads that need to run quickly.
