A DevOps life isn’t a piece of cake in AWS. How are you supposed to make sense of EC2 instance types when you’re looking at almost 400 different ones? Picking the right VM type for the job that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket is a challenge. But there are a few things you can do to make your life easier (and gain points with your financial department).
Careful choice of EC2 instances is definitely worth your time because compute is the biggest part of your cloud bill. If you manage to optimize it, you’ll open the doors to dramatic reductions in your cloud costs.
