About Promosis

Promosis uses sweepstakes, skill contests, loyalty programs, instant-win games and more to help their clients establish, strengthen, and maintain a meaningful relationship with their target audience.



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's Cloud Optimization (ACO) service and gained access to their 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


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


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.


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. 


“Privo’s Cloud Optimization Service was a no-brainer for us. The portal is powerful and easy-to-use, and it’s really nice to know you can get a billing expert on the phone when you need one.”
