Criterion Networks has their product developed and deployed on AWS. They have been on AWS for the last few years with their AWS Spend gradually increasing. Customer was looking at CodinCity to recommend the ways to improvise their AWS Cloud landscape and suggest ways to reduce the cost variations.
We broadly addressed these and categorized under three pillars for Cost Analysis.
Customer had various test environments that were sprawling across different regions. These were either under utilized or used sporadically. Consolidating these test environments and removal of those resources reduced considerable amount of cost.
Most of the EC2 instances were using previous generation storage as their EBS volumes. We recommended customer to migrate those storage volumes to latest generation storage volumes. This provided them with performance improvement and cost reduction by ~20%.
Customer had taken an approach to move to ECS with Fargate. This gave customer opportunity to best utilize the compute resources. We recommended to purchase savings plan for compute that shall give 20% on compute spend.
