AWS Elemental MediaPackage cost saving tips Optimize your AWS Elemental MediaPackage costs with these tips


Use Packaging Groups

Packaging groups help manage content efficiently. Bundling related assets together and applying common settings saves costs as opposed to individual configurations.


Optimize Configurations

Only include essential metadata, encryption schemes, and delivery protocols in your packaging configurations. Lessening unnecessary elements reduces storage and bandwidth costs.


Use AWS Batch

You can significantly lower infrastructure costs by enabling AWS Batch to automatically distribute packaging jobs across Spot instances, which use spare compute capacity.

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.
