Laying the foundation with AWS

Setting up your cloud environment for cost optimisation

The cloud offers tremendous opportunity for increased agility, faster innovation, and lower total cost of ownership.

The organisations that are the most successful in moving from on-premises environments to the cloud are those that establish a well-defined strategy for approaching this new IT operating model early in their journey. Moving from a model of large upfront investment in data centers to the consumption-based model of AWS requires changes to tools, processes, and mindsets to ensure that costs are effectively managed.

The most important practice for effectively optimizing costs with AWS is to start early. Although many cost optimisation practices are relatively easy to implement in small environments, you need new operational best practices, automation, and organizational incentives to be successful at scale across large environments and enterprises. Establishing these best practices early in your journey can help you establish the right processes and behaviors to ensure success when you hit scale.
