Webinar - How to Save Big on AWS Costs


Discussions about the cloud have dominated industry gatherings and tech companies’ promotional materials in recent years. Businesses and individuals have been moving to the cloud in droves. And the term cloud has become so popular that it’s been the source of jokes in television programs like Parks and Rec.


We all know that using the cloud can be beneficial because it allows us to rely on others – like Amazon, Google (News - Alert), and Microsoft – to invest in and maintain computing and storage infrastructure, and software applications. That way we don’t have to shoulder the burden of doing that ourselves. Plus, we can get our applications and services up and running a whole lot faster, and usually more cost efficiently.

That said, there are some responsibilities we need to consider as we move to public clouds. As Densify notes, public cloud marketshare leader Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) presents a whole new set of management challenges and complexities. Many of those involve how to ensure application workloads get the right resources, but without incurring undue costs.

“Effectively addressing these challenges and enabling resource optimization requires a sophisticated blend of deep analysis of workload requirements combined with a comprehensive understanding of these new school environments and the ever changing options they offer,” explains Andrew Hillier, co-founder and chief technology officer at Densify.

During the Oct. 18 webinar, “7 Strategies for Reducing AWS Costs and Optimizing Use of Public Cloud Resources,” Hillier will outline strategies for optimizing your organization’s AWS resources. That, he says, can enable your organization to save as much as 80 percent on cloud costs, and ensure your applications are performing as expected, and that you are meeting compliance requirements.

This webinar will take place at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern. For more information, and to register, click here.
