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


Right-size SNS Usage

Analyze usage patterns and adjust your SNS resources. SNS charges based on usage, so reconfigure number of topics, subscriptions and messages based on needs.


Use SNS Features Wisely

Utilize SNS features like message filtering and archiving to optimize costs. Filtering can prevent unnecessary message deliveries. Archiving stores messages at lower costs.


Clean Up SNS Configuration

Regularly review and delete unused SNS topics, subscriptions and resources to avoid unnecessary charges. The AWS documentation provides further cost-reducing advice.

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.
