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


Use Free League Events

Participate in free AWS DeepRacer League events to hone your autonomous racing skills. This is a cost-effective way to train your reinforcement learning models.


Optimized Training Regime

Optimize reinforcement learning hyperparameters and training regimen to decrease iterations. Each iteration incurs cost, thus fewer iterations mean lower costs.


Reuse Pre-Trained Models

Using pre-existing models from the AWS DeepRacer model marketplace can be cheaper than training new ones. Only create new models if the existing ones don't meet your needs.

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.
