Hello, everybody. And welcome to this lecture and this lecture we're gonna be covering the introduction to building and pricing for the eight of us service is that we've been talking about throughout this course. This is going to be a good part of the certified Cloud practitioner exams. So I do encourage you to
00:16
go through this section of the course and make sure that you read through the documentation.
00:21
Um, let's go ahead and get started.
00:24
All right, let's go ahead and get started.
00:26
So
00:28
let's go ahead and start with the basics.
00:31
So let's go ahead and start with the basics of the pricing policy. So to start us off, I wanted to cover the basics to the pricing policies. So as many of you guys already know, there's a pay as you go model basically a B s. There's a really good job, but saying you're only gonna pay for what you what? You use your not gonna pay for what you don't
00:51
and honestly, that that completely changed the game because,
00:54
you know, if you've been a nightie, Fernie, any length of time, you've probably experienced the fact that
01:00
when your organization needs to get servers. They're trying to predict how much they're going to need, how much they're gonna use in the long run, and
01:07
it's rare that they're actually correct. You know, you may end up using less and therefore you overpaid, remained abusing Ah, too much or needing too much and not having enough capacity. And then you have to go buy a whole new server, rent that out for a long time, and you just end up dropping away too much money. So
01:26
when you pay as you go, you can kind of figure out
01:30
you know how to scale and how to pay for exactly what you need when you need it.
01:34
And eight of us not only does a good job of making sure that you're paying for that resource that you're using but allowing you to scale your pricing up and down, I mean, they alert you. They're not cheating you. They really do try to help you
01:49
to make sure that you are able to monitor and use only what you need.
01:55
That helps you, and then I'll also helps them because they're able to redirect that capacity, or those resource is to another customer who may actually use that. So
02:06
another point that I want to bring up is when you're reserving an instance or when you're reserving capacity, you are actually saving. And we covered that a little bit. We're talking about E. C two instances. We saw that when you reserve an instance, you could save up to 70% which is huge.
02:23
Uh, especially when you know that you're gonna be used in that capacity. If you know this is exactly what you need.
02:28
You have been using this for a long time. You just want to move to the cloud, or it's time to stop using the pansy go model and stick with reserve, because this is gonna be a long time commitment. You can actually reserve that. And you can set it up based on, you know, a couple of years, one year to year three year contracts and and be able to get the
02:46
the pricing that you want
02:49
or at least closer to what you want and ultimately save a lot of money.
02:52
The third point that I want to bring up is when you use more of a devious service is you're actually paying less would I mean by that is, you know, if you integrate multiple service's together like, let's say let's say you're using cloud watch the monitor the ah, the billing and the capacity that you're being that
03:09
that are being used within easy two instances
03:13
Now you're using easy to an amusing cloudwatch. Using more service is and you're saving their because cloudwatch is able to detect when the capacity might be exceeding what you want to pay and is telling you so that where you can go ahead and address it. Uh, that's one way. You know, maybe if you're if you're also
03:32
trying Thio get a lot of servers
03:35
and a lot of instances and you need thio, you know, buy in bulk you're able to save. And that, in evidence, is as well. So
03:43
and the more that you're using, the less you're paying. And I think this also goes in hand, hand in hand with point number four witches. You pay less is eight of us gross and you know it O. P. S has been around for a little bit. Now they're going to continue to expand. Obviously they're the number one club provider out there. So when
04:00
we as customers are giving our business eight of us,
04:03
we're not only helping them, they're actually helping us. They're able to fund for more. Resource is and get their resource. Is that a better deal which are obviously gonna be resold to us? And if they get a better deal, we get a better deal. Everyone. In some pointing, the last point that I want to bring up is custom pricing.
04:21
So the three driving costs, when it comes to any of us, are these three. You have computes
04:29
storage and data, leaving your it obvious environments compute being, you know, your servers. Ah, your data basing storage being about what it is. You know, that's your s three e b s and other storage service is
04:42
and data ultimately leaving your AWS environments, which we didn't cover a whole lot of its not necessarily within scope
04:48
of the certified cloud practitioner exam,
04:51
but is in the scope of thes certified associate level exams. Basically, what that means is that when you over you create an architecture or a network within eight of us, any data that is leaving that is going to end up being charged? These are one the cost come into play in some of the things that you need to look out for.
05:13
Some ways to kind of help with pricing is make sure that you're optimizing for costs. Early on, make sure that you are implementing the rights monitoring. Make sure that you're only using what you need and that you're able to scale and be flexible, Which kind of brings me on to point to pay for what you need and no more.
05:31
We've been doing that for too long. We've been We've been buying things that are excessive buying servers, buying capacity on premise ends, even
05:42
even in the cloud and dedicated servers and stuff like that.
05:45
That's are just, you know, they're too much. They're either too much or too little for what we need
05:50
here. With eight of us, you can pay for exactly what you need and ultimately save your organization that way
05:56
and then use the right pricing model for the for the job
06:00
and then use the right pricing model for the job. You want to make sure you understand The pricing for resource is for each of the service is that you are interested in using and incorporating within your organization for more information on that, I would encourage you to go to those FAA cues and go to the service is individually
06:16
and further read into how the pricing works.
06:23
Some of the free service is that we get by using eight of us are Amazon VPC elastic bean stock. The service itself Confirmation. I am
06:36
auto scaling ops Works and Consolidated Building.
06:41
These are some very valuable applications, some in which we actually covered a little bit on
06:46
That's integrate with all the other service is that Amazon monetize is off of and we need when we're moving to the cloud. VPC is gonna handle that. Working in the cloud elastic mean stock's gonna handle the orchestration of different adovia service is that you're using
07:02
confirmation handles. The deployment of the service is like servers and databases and
07:09
things of that such identity, access management, andl security and access control. Auto scaling is going to handle the spinning up and spinning down of resource is as demands requires ops works is kind of like a devil pes tule consolidating billing
07:27
is going to handle the aggregation of building for multiple eight of US accounts.
07:31
We're different departments into one place. These are a lot of great free service is that are going to add a lot of value to your various teams. So it abuse is giving a lot of value. And this kind of goes back to one of the other points that I brought up,
07:46
which is the more that we use a to b s, the more that they're going to save us, and the more they're gonna be able to provide
07:55
to us. So, you know, we we help them and they are ultimately helping us is Well, all right, everybody. I hope that was helpful. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
08:05
You can also take a look at my blawg there. I will have some more information on AWS billing and how that relates for the certified cloud practitioner exam.
08:16
Uh, if you don't have any questions, please feel free to join me in the next lecture.
