Why AWS Cost Optimization Should be Part of Your Ongoing Cloud Strategy
Here at Mission, our goal is to help companies eliminate wasteful spending on AWS and deliver a stress-free experience with our AWS services. We created this AWS Pricing Calculator so you could download it and use it on your own computer, without being reliant on the internet.
It also allows you to alter the numbers after you’ve created and saved them which is not quite as easy to do using the AWS Pricing Calculator.
Some Helpful Notes to Reference:
The sheet is laid out so you have the compute options for all of the services on AWS at the top and below that the storage options and some additional services below. In each section, we give you space to put in the names of your servers or resources in the first column, and after that any columns outlined in orange are used to make the calculations for the total cost. So if you see a cell outlined in orange then you need to make sure to choose a value for that cell in order to have the calculations register at the end.
If you see a NA in the columns at the right, that means that the combination of options that you chose in the orange cells is not available on AWS, so you’ll need to make some different selections until you see actual costs pop up in the Pricing Calculator.
In this video, we’ll cover:
At the bottom of the page, you can find the total for all of the services that we’ve chosen, including the monthly costs and the annual costs, as well as the AWS support fee.
