Cloud Power-Up: Improving Cost Awareness on AWS

WEBINAR: Tuesday 30th July 2024, 10-10.30am BST (30 mins)

Details

As a Validated partner on the AWS Well-Architected Partner Program (WAPP), our team reviews hundreds of workloads every year, and remediating the Cost Optimisation pillar is often the highest priority.

While we are happy to assist (a third of our customers made a cost saving of 25% or more following a Well-Architected Framework Review), organisations can significantly reduce the need for and scope of periodic cost optimisations by improving their cost awareness.

Werner Vogels (Amazon CTO) highlighted cost awareness at re:Invent 2023, proposing that cost be made a non-functional requirement as part of the seven laws of his ‘The Frugal Architect‘ keynote.

However, getting started with cost awareness can be a daunting task.

Join this 30-minute Power-Up and learn ways to increase your awareness and understanding of AWS usage and identify areas of spend that can be optimised. We’ll also look at useful AWS funding programs that can be leveraged through Ubertas Consulting to support your cloud journey.

Agenda

  • Introduction to Cloud Power-Ups
  • Cost optimisation vs. cost awareness
  • Cost awareness tools on AWS
  • AWS funding programs
  • Q&A / Next steps
