Reduce your monthly AWS costs with this copebit service

It’s a common theme for our clients to complain that their AWS costs, which start off low at first only escalate to possibly high amounts. The why is simple: AWS services are easy enough to start with and fall under intense usage, but soon, small configuration errors and sub-optimal architectures and designs can result in enormous costs.

copebit offers just the solution for AWS clients looking to maximize cost-efficiency.

What We Offer

  • Workshop for gaining an understanding of your applications and architecture
  • Analysis of your ‘current state’
  • Creation of a cost analysis, including cost development and cost drivers
  • Deep-dive into the Top 10 of cost drivers
  • Detailed mitigation plan including suggestions for implementing cost reductions >> ‘future state’ and gap analysis
  • Workshop for the presentation of the mitigation plan

Our copebit engineers will analyze your AWS account using tools such as Trusted Advisor and CloudCheckr to work out a detailed plan to reduce your costs.

These sectors will be addressed with possible recommendations:

  • Right-sizing
  • Reservations and Spot Instances
  • Leveraging on-demand pricing by deactivating instances/services such as Dev or Test-instances overnight
  • Cloud-native, use of microservices
  • Elasticity, use of dynamic infrastructures (autoscaling)
  • License review
  • Storage costs (snapshot strategy, S3-Tiering, etc.)
