AWS ADS cost saving tips Optimize your AWS ADS costs with these tips


Right-size Agents

Deploy only the necessary number of agents for data collection from on-premises servers. Keep in mind agents are billed hourly, so deploying more than needed increases costs.


Use Agentless Discovery

For certain workloads, agentless discovery with network sniffers can offer the needed insights. This reduces costs associated with deploying and managing agents on individual servers.


Delete Unused Tags/Attributes

Frequently check the tags and custom attributes collected by agents. Delete any that are no longer relevant to lower the cost of storing metadata. Refer to the AWS service quotas and limits documentation.

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.
