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


Implement Caching

Configure caching on AppSync resolvers and fields accessed frequently but rarely changed, preventing unnecessary backend service calls and reducing costs.


Right-Size Resources

Monitor resource usage via CloudWatch. Ensure AppSync instances and backend services are appropriately sized, as oversizing results in unnecessary costs.


Delete Unused Resources

Regularly review AppSync configurations and delete unused schemas, types, and resolvers. Remove associated Lambda functions, DynamoDB tables, etc. not in use to reduce 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.
