Course Description

Cloud computing uses an ongoing operating expense (OPEX) model as opposed to the capital expenditure (CAPEX) model required to host IT equipment and services entirely on-premises. Use this course to learn how to set up various AWS cost management strategies.

Begin by reviewing these strategies before practicing using tags for cost tracking. Next, analyze costs using the Cost Explorer tool and identify underutilized resources. Moving on, configure AWS budgets, EC2 spot instances, and EC2 as well as RDS reserved instances. Lastly, configure an AWS savings plan and work with consolidated billing.

By the end of this course, you'll be able to set up cost-saving strategies for all your AWS services. Furthermore, this course will help you prepare for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate exam, SOA-C02.
