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


Right-size HSMs

Ensure your CloudHSM hardware security modules (HSMs) are correctly sized to meet your actual crypto processing needs to avoid unnecessary costs.


Use hourly pricing

Maximize CloudHSM's hourly pricing model by only paying for the time HSMs are provisioned and deprovision any not actively in use to avoid standby costs.


Group crypto workloads

Keep related cryptographic workloads on the same HSMs to maximize hardware utilization. Only provision additional HSMs if necessary to meet increased throughput requirements.

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.
