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


Analyze DB Usage

Analyze Neptune's database usage patterns and adjust instance type, storage size and IOPS accordingly. Use smaller instance types during non-peak periods to reduce costs.


Use Reserved Capacity

Leverage Neptune's reserved capacity for predictable workloads to get discounts compared to on-demand pricing. However, it requires a 1 or 3 year term commitment.


Integrate Other Services

Integrate services like Amazon DynamoDB or S3 for temporary or archival data storage. This helps right-size your Neptune storage capacity resulting in minimizing costs.

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.
