Navigating Amazon Web Services’ compute services and discovering the best mix of instance purchasing options and cost-saving measures for your EC2 environment can be challenging. Last week, ParkMyCloud hosted a webinar, 5 Ways to Reduce Your AWS Spending.

In the webinar, our CTO, Dale, shared how you can obtain better savings than Reserved Instances, with less risk than Spot Instances, and without the cost and headache of scripting. Topics included: Reserved Instances, Spot Instances, Autoscaling Groups, Scripting, and Parking.

Even if you weren’t able to join us last week, you can still watch the presentation! Check it out below:

The slides used the presentation are also available here on Slideshare.
