Abstract

Cost for cloud workloads is often a paradigm shift for most organizations. First, we start getting monthly bills because everything is rented and secondly, most of the price calculations are not so easy to understand, making cost optimization on cloud difficult to understand and implement.
This session will help you decipher cost calculations for AWS and provide you with best practices for optimizing cost for your cloud workloads.
You will also learn how we managed to save US $ 1.5 million in annual billing costs for an AWS customer.
This session is intended for all who have their workloads deployed on cloud, including entrepeneurs, project managers, solution architects and system administrators.
