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.

AWS IoT Events pricing

AWS IoT Events operates on a usage basis with no mandatory costs or compulsory service use. 'Message evaluations' are billed in 1 KB chunks when the event detector reviews an incoming message. Each evaluation initiating up to 2 external actions is viewed as a new message evaluation. No extra charge is applied for triggering up to two actions per evaluation. If more than two actions are activated, they're billed as extra evaluations. Each active alarm, a rule-based alert, costs $0.10/month.
