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 Firewall Manager

AWS Firewall Manager is a security service enabling users to centrally manage firewall rules across multiple accounts and apps within the AWS Organizations framework. It facilitates deployment of managed rules, like pre-set WAF rules on applications across different accounts, and automatically enforces user-defined security policies among existing and new resources. It also allows centralized deployment of baseline security group rules, protecting virtual private clouds (VPCs).
