AWS License Manager cost saving tips Optimize your AWS License Manager costs with these tips


Consolidate License Rules

Having fewer comprehensive rules to manage licenses across different AWS resources and services can help reduce costs related to rule administration and management.


Review License Assignments

Regularly review and remove unused entitlements from resources that are no longer in use. This ensures licenses are efficiently used for active resources only.


Utilize Built-in Integrations

Use integrations with other AWS services for centralized discovery and inventory of software licenses. This reduces costs for separate tools or processes to manage license compliance.

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.
