The good result of an investment in the cloud results basically in two main aspects: increased performance in the company's operations and the return on investment, which validates the project and guarantees the continuity of new initiatives, allowing the optimization of costs with cutting-edge technology. .

Cloud computing continues to grow and Amazon Web Services expands its investments by offering technology and competitive prices to attract more companies. But the pursuit of cost optimization is not Amazon's responsibility. It is necessary to invest in tools that help in continuous improvement.

Cost optimization starts in the cloud

In a process of continuous improvement in cloud migration projects, the analysis of infrastructure results, defined in the planning phase, is constant. It is necessary to verify that the designed architecture, regarding the use of technology assets and services, are in accordance with what was planned and with positive results.

But it is always possible to improve, like Amazon, new technologies and resources are included in the service platform, which can optimize the infrastructure of customers and Amazon itself.

Learn the benefits of application integration and SaaS adoption

A good example of this quest for cost optimization by Amazon is the AWS Spot instance offer. It consists of compute capacity at times of low demand, available at deep discounts compared to the price of EC2 instances in high demand.

AWS Spot EC2 allows you to optimize costs in the AWS cloud based on the conditions that were created by Amazon for offering these instances.

Other cost optimization tips

As with the use of AWS Spot instances, there are other initiatives that can be used to optimize costs.

  • Keep evaluating and optimizing your infrastructure, there's always room for improvement
  • Monitor your environment for bottlenecks or low yields
  • Look for simplified management
  • Develop and apply best market practices
  • Track costs related to infrastructure and pricing
  • Save without compromising the performance of your cloud infrastructure
  • Invest in tools that help with cost optimization

Cost optimization is also a priority with which Amazon partners

As an Amazon partner, Sky.One also seeks to offer its customers options in order to optimize costs. Our vision is to increasingly improve the use of the AWS cloud.

Cloud computing is the tool for business growth

A good example of this search is the Sky.Saver tool. It was created to apply artificial intelligence in infrastructure management, combining the advantages of EC2 instances with the price of AWS Spot. It is the union of simplified management with cost optimization with spot prices.

The advantage of tools like this is that everyone wins. AWS optimizes idle infrastructure and Sky.One customers optimize their costs.
