In-Depth Look at What is Covered in the Webinar

AWS Budgets

AWS Budgets enables you to set a budget and alerts for when you exceed, or are forecasted to exceed, your budgeted cost or usage amount.

We can help you understand the true performance needs of your resources, as well as leverage the right pricing model and storage class. AWS offers many types of storage based on your application’s needs, and it’s important to leverage the right class of storage to be cost efficient. Digicon helps to identify ways to optimize your AWS infrastructure, improve security and performance, reduce costs, and monitor service quotas. We offer a free consultation to discuss your AWS security, S3 bucket permissions, security groups, service limits, and more.

By implementing the tips shared in the lunch & learn, we have been able to reduce costs for our client Unanet. All of Unanet’s systems are now virtual instead of being physical, costly, dedicated, vendor-managed servers. Using AWS, Digicon routinely resizes individual compute and storage resources that previously had to be bought with a three- to five-year capacity plan in mind. This has eliminated Unanet’s capacity limit issues without having to predict its long-term needs and requirements. With its systems in the cloud environment, Unanet has direct, immediate control over its expenses and has optimized costs with the pay-per-use model and Amazon’s cost analysis tools. Digicon improved Unanet’s continuity and recovery issues by spreading out the elevations across multiple availability zones, ensuring its systems remain available and reliable.

After providing AWS and consulting services for our other client, Patriot Realty, the company is now well established in the cloud and has more visibility into its IT costs. Now Patriot has a single bill that represents all costs, rather than numerous individual bills to track for separate services. Implementing cloud-based services has also eliminated the need to maintain and buy new hardware and software licenses, saving several thousands per year on licenses alone.
