AWS Auto Scaling cost saving tips Optimize your AWS Auto Scaling costs with these tips


Use Utilization Metrics

Configure scaling policies based on utilization metrics instead of absolute thresholds. This allows for more efficient and gradual scaling based on demand, avoiding over-provisioning.


Delete Unused Resources

Remove unused Auto Scaling groups, launch configurations, and related resources. These are chargeable even when not actively scaling instances.


Use Predictive Scaling

Exploit Auto Scaling's predictive scaling to anticipate and scale resources before a demand spike. This balances capacity and load without over-provisioning.

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.
