Session abstract: 

Twelve months ago, Cloudability's operations team set out on an ambitious project designed to control AWS spending while simultaneously adopting automation best practices and improving overall efficiency. This talk will highlight lessons learned in optimization of AWS operations resulting in a spending reduction of over 50% while simultaneously doubling the improvement of resource utilization and growing top line company revenue.

Specific topics will include Cloudability's use of automation tools including Puppet, Docker and Packer in addition to AWS-specific tools like Lambda functions, Elastic Container Service, the EC2 Spot Market, Auto Scaling Groups and AWS Aurora. 

This talk will cover specific elements of operating a SaaS infrastructure for cloud efficiency but should be applicable to all users of cloud computing.

This talk is presented by Cloudability.
