Building complicated architecture on AWS can cost you a considerable amount of money. This fact makes people think twice before moving their infrastructure to AWS. However, AWS offers many ways to reduce costs and a professional architect will know how to optimize your system the way that it would be cost-efficient and suit your business. One of the means that is used for AWS cost optimization is EC2 Spot instances.
How we use Spot instances
Case from our experience: infrastructure cost optimization
We applied several other cost-optimization techniques, which included resizing of low-utilized instances, applying for saving plans, and others, which resulted in another 18% price reduction. When the client came to us, their monthly AWS payment was around $1500, and after we optimized the infrastructure it became around $850.
Building Spot instances into the infrastructure, the architect should know how to do it without hurting the uptime and smooth operation of the whole system. We have the knowledge and experience needed to work with this type of instances, and use them in our clients’ systems.
