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.

About Amazon VPC Service information & pricing

About Amazon VPC

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) allows the launching of AWS resources in a custom virtual network. Users can manage IP range, subnets, route tables, and network gateways. It allows the creation of public-facing subnets for web servers, with backend systems in private subnets. It enhances security for Amazon EC2 instances and can work with AWS Transit Gateway, AWS Private Link, AWS Network Firewall, AWS VPN, and NAT gateway.

Amazon VPC pricing

Amazon VPC is free, however, optional features incur usage-based charges for control, connectivity, monitoring, and security. Other AWS services like EC2 are payable separately. Charges apply per VPN connection-hour if VPC is linked to a corporate data center via VPN. Usual AWS rates are charged for data transfer over VPN. If a NAT gateway is established in a VPC, "NAT Gateway-hour" charges with additional data processing fees apply.
