Many customers choose AWS because they need a highly reliable, scalable, and low-cost platform on which to run their applications. Low "pay only for what you use" pricing and frequent price decreases are just the beginning of how AWS can help you optimize your usage and achieve lower costs. In this session, you will learn about a few simple tools for monitoring and managing your AWS resource usage that you can start using right away, as well as some innovative features that can help you operate at lower costs programmatically. Cost allocation reporting, detailed usage reports, billing alerts, EC2 Auto Scaling, Spot and Reserved Instances, and idle resource detection are just a few of the tools and features we will cover.
