AWS Cost Cut Sprint

Most cloud bills can be optimized. Since 94% of surveyed leaders see higher cloud costs than expected (2022, Veritas), it might be smart to review your bill. See how it can be slashed during a 2-week sprint with our AWS-certified CloudOps team.

2 weeks can have a big impact

British retailer NDA project thumbnail

One British retailer cut their monthly bill from $68K to $36K in just a week

EC2 Compute costs dropped by 50% by limiting the number of Jenkins workers and required instances

The implementations of a cleaning mechanism for EBS-backed storage (snapshots) led to 70% more savings.

Frequently Asked Questions

01 What are the AWS cost optimization solutions that you consider?
Our CloudOps engineers suggest a fitting solution after a 1-2 week audit that can examine the product’s architecture, storage use, and workload processes. Some of our partners managed to cut costs by reducing EC2 instances, re-architecting the system to limit the number of required servers, or by introducing “cleaning” processes to remove unneeded data.
02 Will I have to use a third-party AWS cost optimization service?
To complete the AWS Cost Cut Sprint, we’ll work with the tech stack you business uses or the tools our CloudOps team has with no additional investment.
03 What kind of cloud cost management projects have you completed?
Some of our recent cost optimization projects projects include:We release around 30 AWS projects per year. Discover the fulls scope of what we solve with AWS here.
04 Could you help us reduce cloud storage costs?
Yes. For each AWS Cost Cut Sprint, our engineers review if workloads really require the amount of storage used. Many times, they find there is no process for cleaning “waste”, such as machine image snapshots, after they’re not required anymore.

After the Sprint, your company could receive a report that includes a breakdown of the cloud storage and what can be optimized.
