In this presentation, CloudCheckr founders Aaron Newman and Aaron Klein (see below) look at instance purchasing types, utilization levels, and factors that should be considered to effectively optimize your AWS spend.
• Overview of costs in AWS
• Choosing on-demand vs. reserved instances vs. spot
• Optimizing resources
• And more!
