Solution Overview

Managing your cloud costs requires a multi faceted approach, from controlling to optimising and everything in-between.

Control your AWS costs

AWS Budgets gives you the ability to set custom budgets that alert you when your costs or usage exceed (or are forecasted to exceed) your budgeted amount. With AWS Budgets you can:

  • Create and manage budgets
  • Refine your budget using filters
  • Add notifications to your budget

Optimise your AWS costs

With AWS Cost Explorer, you can visualize, understand, and manage your AWS costs and usage over time. You can cross-reference your costs and usage to determine which usage types accrue the most cost, and take corrective action.

The AWS Cost explorer will assist you with:

  • Analyse monthly costs by AWS Service
  • Viewing hourly and resource level granularity
  • Choosing a savings plan that offers you the most savings

Deep Dive with AWS Cost and usage Reports

The AWS Cost & Usage Report contains a comprehensive set of AWS usage data & metadata about AWS services. This data set can be integrated with Amazon Athena, Amazon Redshift or Amazon Quicksight, enabling you to quickly query your cost and usage information using standard SQL queries.

Cloud Cost Review

Olikka's Cloud Cost Review is designed at helping you understand your cloud costs and usage and providing you with a plan to reduce them.

Includes:

Leveraging AWS Cost Management Services such as AWS Budgets and AWS Cost Explorer, our team will help you visualise your cloud usage and costs and identify areas of optimisation, such as

  • reserved instances
  • shutting down unused or dormant services
  • leveraging savings plans
  • suggestions for re-architecture or app modernisation
Cloud Cost Optimisation

Olikka's Cloud Cost Optimisation builds upon the Cloud Cost Review by delivering the recommendations from the Cloud Cost Review.

Includes:

This typically involves:

  • Establishing budgets within AWS Budgets
  • Removal of dormant services
  • Setting reserved instances
  • Implement Savings plan
  • Implement Auto-Scaling based on demand profile leveraging Spot, Reserved & On-Demand instances
  • Implement resource scheduling (eg scheduling shut down of all test/dev instances outside of business hours)
  • Utilising spot instances (where applicable)
  • Potentially re-architecting applications to leverage microservices (this might suit an app engineering project).  

Cloud Cost Optimisation includes development of a cost management process and staff training and empowerment, to ensure they can manage your cloud costs into the future.
