If you leave your home, it’s common sense to lower the room temperature and turn off the lights. This directly impacts your consumption of gas and electricity and thus your energy bill. Interestingly enough this common practice is not consistently applied in organizations around cloud spend.
This whitepaper provides actions and strategies to reduce your cloud and AWS bill by describing five real-life perspectives on cost optimization. But actions alone are not enough to stay in control of your costs. We touch on governance guidelines that make all stakeholders of the cloud aware of their spend and help them keep the bill clean.
