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 OpsWorks for Chef Automate pricing depends on connected nodes to your Chef server & their runtime, along with the Amazon EC2 instance hosting the Chef server. Charges are hourly for each active EC2 instance or on-premises server, with no upfront fees. Charges stop once a Chef node is de-registered or shut down. AWS Free Tier offers 10 free nodes per month for the first year. Extra charges may be levied for services like Amazon Elastic Block Store, S3 for backups, and CloudWatch for logging.
