In this session, we explore techniques, tools, and partner solutions that provide a framework for monitoring, analyzing, and automating cost savings. We look at several case studies and real world examples where our customers have realized significant savings. Some of the specific topics covered are: migration cost management; cost-effective hybrid architectures; saving money with microservices; serverless computing with AWS Lambda, and Amazon EC2; using fungible components to drive down costs over time; cost vs. performance vs. value; AWS purchasing strategies (On-Demand, Reserved Instances, and the Spot Market), tools and services from both AWS (AWS Trusted Advisor, Amazon CloudWatch, etc.) and our partner solutions that can help with cost optimization. Finally, we roll all of these into an automated process for continuous optimization.
