Understanding AWS Charging

Our specialist consultants understand how to get the most out of AWS and can help to deliver the most cost-effective solution for your business that provides the highest possible performance at a manageable cost.

Businesses who move to AWS benefit from greater business flexibility, staff mobility and data security but because AWS uses a PAYG charging model it can be confusing and means that it is often difficult for you to estimate and forecast monthly IT costs before the invoice arrives.

AWS allows instances to be created almost instantaneously and without proactive management and support charges can quickly add up. It is easy for a company to over specify resources paying for higher specification virtual machines and compute power or even worse paying for unused resources.

As a certified AWS partner, the UK based consultancy team from igroup support customers to ensure that they are not overcharged for AWS by ensuring they plan and specify the right solution from the outset that meets business objectives and growth plans. In addition, customers who subscribe to AWS through igroup benefit from significant cost savings and billing plans rather than paying on a credit card.

Reduce your operational costs and improve performance by managing your AWS charges

Your charges for AWS will vary depending on which features you decide to use, as well as how much you use it. If you choose to migrate to AWS without the support of a consultant or solution architect, there are no upfront costs for AWS, and the free tier gives instant access to resources, but if you over specify your solution you will face significantly higher charges or have to deal with unexpected costs because you have not planned your solution correctly in the first place.

Retain the highest levels of performance whilst managing your AWS charges

It is possible to reduce your AWS costs in different ways without necessarily impacting the performance of your applications:

  • Switching off what you do not use – shut down virtual machines when they are not in use or not required
  • Choose the right pricing tier at the start – take expert advice to keep costs down
  • Buy through a third party – by subscribing to AWS through a third party such as igroup you will benefit from their group buying power as well as knowledge and expertise

igroup’s Cloud Control Service helps to manage cloud deployments and this contributes to more efficient systems with lower costs.  Cloud Control can help manage the amount of resource you have provisioned based on usage so that you only pay for the resources you need. Combined with our IT Cost Control service, you will get full insight into what you are paying for and identify opportunities to reduce costs.

igroup’s approach to managing the cloud needs of clients ensures that they are not charged for resources that they don’t need, and more importantly, they benefit from a cloud deployment that maximises performance during peak times and improves the ability of the business to process and share information.
