Overview:

DevOps and finance teams need to continuously manage their costs. Idle and underutilized resources will quickly escalate your bill. On-Demand instances cost 4-6x comparable Reserved Instances.

For this presentation Aaron Newman of CloudCheckr will be covering

• An overview of AWS costs

• How to use tags to track and allocate spend by business unit, department, or team

• How to identify idle and underutilized resources
