To achieve cost optimization, a variety of AWS tools and services were employed. The key services used primarily included AWS CloudWatch, AWS Cost & Usage Report, AWS Cost Explorer, AWS Budgets, and AWS Cost Manager.
As a first step, monitoring was decided upon to detect any potential performance issues in real-time, enabling quick actions through AWS CloudWatch.
AWS Cost & Usage Report provided Exanet with a detailed and customizable view of their costs and usage on the platform, allowing for precise tracking of cloud expenses and informed decisions for resource optimization.
To identify high-cost areas, an intuitive exploration and visualization service, AWS Cost Explorer, was included in the solution.
AWS Budgets were used to set spending limits and configure alerts to maintain control over cloud costs and avoid billing surprises.
Furthermore, AWS Cost Manager facilitated precise expense tracking and supported decision-making.
The project was distinguished by significant cost savings, efficient resource management, and strategic collaboration. This underscores the importance of customized solutions and the tools provided by AWS to achieve financial efficiency and sustainable success in the cloud.
