The challenge

Promosis has been "all-in" on AWS for years, but as the company rapidly scaled their infrastructure they needed to make sure their costs didn't rapidly scale as well! Traditional approaches to cost management which rely on manual, reactive processes had become untenable as their now modernized infrastructure dynamically scales up and down in response to changing demand. Promosis needed a cost management solution that was as dynamic and proactive as their infrastructure. 

The solution

Promosis joined Privo Managed Billing service and gained access to Privo's powerful cost management portal. In the portal, Promosis was able to review their historical AWS performance and see recommendations for purchasing Reserved Instances (R1s), removing unused resources, and right-sizing their instances. Working with one of Privo's dedicated billing experts Promosis was able to optimize the account and reduce their monthly AWS hosting fees by over 30%. Furthermore, Privo was also able to identify advanced recommendations for cost savings such as migrating their database to Aurora, saving 40% while also increasing the performance of their database by 5x. 

The Benefits

Reserved Instances

The Privo Managed Billing portal analyzed Promosis' Detailed Billing Record (DBR) and laid out the various RI purchase options and their associated Return-on-Investment (ROI). 

Right-Sizing

Promosis removed unused resources and resized under-utilized resources to trim additional costs. The portal even highlights when switching to newer generation instance types would save money while simultaneously improving performance.

Proactive Cost Management

By Setting up cost management alerts, Promosis can rest assured they will not be hit with an unexpected increase to their AWS bill. The alerts can be tuned through a simple web interface.
