Cut Your Cloud Bill with AWS Cost Optimization
Managing your AWS costs is hard.
The cloud has made it easier than ever to scale up infrastructure when you need it with their pay-as-you-go pricing model, but all that extra capacity can add up fast. Maybe you have some unknown cloud expenses eating into your IT budget that are going unnoticed because they aren't assigned to any project or team.
Pilotcore helps you identify the areas where you're accumulating unnecessary costs and to get more out of your IT budget by monitoring usage and optimizing spend across accounts. Whether you're looking to get better control over your spending or increase your startup's runway, Pilotcore is at your service.

How Does Our Cost Optimization Service Work?
Analyze Your Billing History
We start by reviewing your billing history and take an inventory of which services you have been using to get a sense of your service usage and current costs.
It's usually immediately apparent when you have resources that are costing you money while providing little if any value. We flag those suspect resources and so your team can shut them down or ask us to do it for you. From excess compute resources to high storage costs for infrequently accessed files, to finding the right pricing options to reduce costs, these initial quick wins usually provide a substantial cost reduction benefit.
Working with your team we determine what the actual requirements are for running your workloads. Based on this we can either adjust your existing resources through rightsizing and other optimizations, or propose architectural changes that will ultimately save you money. We use the AWS Cost Calculator to give you an estimate of the resulting monthly charges.
Implementation and Monitoring
If significant long-term cost savings can be realized by making architectural changes and you have approved them, we undertake the changes. If you would like us to monitor your environment over the following weeks to confirm the expected cost improvements, we would be happy to do that.
