How can I reduce my AWS subscription costs?
The cost of your monthly AWS subscription takes into account the amount of use you have and the types of virtual machines that have been configured.
Ongoing monitoring of your usage of AWS can help to reduce costs because it identifies which services are costing more than they need to.
At the start of your usage of AWS, it is important for your AWS Consultants to design an environment that is correctly suited to your needs, and to review the deployment regularly as your usage evolves.
One approach to reducing AWS Costs is simply to scale back the machines you specify to a lower level, however this can impact performance. A better solution is to scale on demand – this means looking at your usage patterns and specifying a lower power machine at times when your staff are not accessing data and returning to the correct level during peaks.
Our Cloud Control software does this automatically for our AWS managed services clients.
