New Webinar: 5 Steps to Optimise AWS Costs

17th September 2018 by 
Manzoor Mohammed Cloud Cost

In the rush to migrate to public cloud, many enterprises have adopted a lift-and-shift approach that is now presenting them with higher-than-expected costs that are rapidly increasing. Reducing your cloud spend and getting the costs under control is a vital but difficult undertaking – requiring the right data and expertise.

Although there are a wealth of tools on the market available to help, most only make recommendations for reserved instances (RIs), but this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cloud cost optimisation.

By signing up for our 5 Steps to Optimise AWS Costs webinar, you can discover a proven approach to quickly, safely and sustainably cutting your AWS costs by 30%..

A quick note to say that while we often specifically refer to AWS because they are the market leaders. However, the advice and insight found in the webinar is applicable to any sizeable cloud solution.

What to Expect from the Webinar

Hosted by Capacitas’s Dr Manzoor Mohammed and Phil Horn, this 45-minute webinar takes the insight we’ve gained from optimising AWS costs for several enterprises and breaks it down into 5 easy-to-digest steps
