Web and mobile refers to the collection of tools and technologies required to power internet applications. AWS provides on-demand access to scalable web and application servers, storage, databases, content delivery, cache, search, and other application services that make it easier to build and run apps that deliver a great customer experience.

Using AWS, Pinterest has tripled its use of storage and compute over just two years without worrying about reliability or scalability. Pinterest provides one of the world's largest visual-bookmarking tools, with more than 200 million users and 2 billion boards. The company has used a variety of AWS services to scale its processing, storage, and data-analysis workloads to help developers focus on delighting customers.

Speaker:
The need to closely monitor and control costs is a constant for the Financial Services industry, and currently there is moew pressure to optimize spending. In this webinar, our Commercial Operations and Strategy Team (COST) will share five approaches that leading financial institutions are taking to manage their cloud spend. Webinar attendees will learn how to harness AWS tools and services to align the interests of Finance, Engineering, and Procurement and set a path for long-term, sustainable cloud adoption while realizing short-term efficiencies. Topics we will cover include: elasticity (automating start/stops for non-production workloads); right-sizing storage with intelligent tiering; pricing models to pay less for more compute power; guardrails and alerts to set limitations across teams; and forecasting to avoid surprises. We’ll share real-life success stories of customers who have used these approaches to optimize their AWS spending and also provide an overview of the resources available to help financial institutions set strategy for cloud cost management.
