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 AWS Cloud Map Service information & pricing

About AWS Cloud Map

AWS Cloud Map is a discovery service for cloud resources that allows custom naming of app resources. It tracks resource locations to ensure app availability, simplifying resource management to improve developer productivity. It also includes a health check system for app efficiency. Essential for handling microservices, continuous integration, delivery, and automated health monitoring, it maintains an updated registry of service names/locations.

AWS Cloud Map pricing

AWS Cloud Map pricing is based on the enlisted resources and the API calls used. No upfront payments; it's a pay-per-use system. Extra charges may apply if you enable DNS discovery for IP resources and use Amazon Route 53 for health checks. Costs are calculated per resource (e.g. an EC2 instance/month) and per million DiscoverInstances API calls. Registering IP resources with Amazon Route 53 DNS and enabling optional health checks can incur more costs.
