Best Practices: How to Save Money on Your Amazon Web Services Deployment
By: Laura DuBois
This IDC Perspective provides recommendations on strategies that AWS users can employ to manage services costs.
According to Laura DuBois, GVP, Enterprise Storage, Servers, and Infrastructure Software at IDC, "the best practices included in this IDC Perspective allow organizations to more economically move to the cloud and current users to reduce their service costs. The industry players, including AWS, continue to innovate to help customers identify and optimize usage and cost and customers welcome mechanisms that increase visibility and reduce costs. The growing use of IaaS for production workloads by enterprises and service providers brings about organizational, process, control, application, and cost implications. Customers must continue to monitor, track, and analyze their cloud infrastructure costs to ensure optimal usage and alignment with operational needs and budgetary constraints."
