Right-Size Resources

Analyze usage patterns to adjust QuickSight resources like users and data volume according to your needs. This helps to avoid unnecessary costs.


Use Reserved Capacity

For predictable workloads, consider QuickSight's reserved capacity. Despite requiring a 1 or 3 year commitment, it offers significant discounts compared to on-demand pricing.


Integrate with AWS S3

For temporary data storage needs, integrate QuickSight with AWS S3. This allows better resource allocation and helps minimize QuickSight costs over time.

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.
