Notwithstanding the benefits of cloud infrastructure, cloud cost management persists as a major challenge to the adoption of modern architecture. Right-sizing analysis, consistent infrastructure monitoring, and performance optimization are not only a potential drain on your DevOps resources, but provide just a portion of the picture.

Watch this webinar to learn how to optimize cloud costs by adopting intelligent automation and best practices in a modern consumption model. In this training-based session, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and DevOps Institute will discuss how to ready your cost management practice for automation, in turn improving your DevOps resourcing.

On-Demand attendees will also receive the associated whitepaper written by DevOps Institute Ambassador, Sean Davis.

Watch this webinar to learn how to:

  • Transition from a data center model to a modern consumption model to optimize utilization of on-demand, spot, and reserved instances (RI)
  • Enable team ownership of cloud spend and ensure your costs move in line with demand
  • Effectively use tag mapping and account groupings to gain a better understanding of cost allocation
  • Adopt automation and DevOps practices to scale and predict resourcing needs
  • Leverage partner solutions in AWS Marketplace such as Apptio Cloudability to continuously improve the unit costs of cloud
