Amazon FSx cost saving tips Optimize your Amazon FSx costs with these tips


Choose Right Storage

FSx provides HDD and SSD storage. HDD is cost effective for general workloads, SSD provides better performance for latency sensitive tasks like databases.


Use Data Deduplication

Enable data deduplication to eliminate redundant data and cut storage costs. It identifies duplicate data blocks and saves only one copy.


Right-size Capacity

Select the suitable throughput capacity based on your I/O needs. This enables you to only pay for the capacity you need.

About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.
