Amazon AWS Reserved Instance Calculator in real time

The AWS reserved instance calculator by Cloud Reports is a true real time calculator that continuously calculates and recommends no regret / no risk reserved instance purchases to ensure financial efficient usage of Amazon EC2 reserved instances. This is not a gimmick or a spreadsheet not a simulator or an heuristic calculation! Cloud Reports believes that the best recommendation is made from real and actual usage data that ensures usage accuracy. It is a real analysis done by Cloud Reports Analytics in a non-invasive and non-intrusive way without any need to implement anything. It identifies consistent usage that will justify in a very predictable manner proper AWS reserved instances purchases to replace consistent AWS EC2 on demand usage.

Amazon AWS Reserved Instance Life Cycle Management Tool

A comprehensive tool that tracks the full lifecycle of an AWS Reserved Instance purchase decision, its on going operation and termination of  an AWS Reserved Instance.

Datapipe Cloud Reports follows the following 4 step lifecycle methods:

  •  Prepare & PlanPlanning for RI adoption

  •  ImplementPurchase and adopt RIs

  •  TrackRI Usage

  •  ImproveRecycle RI

Understand what is your compute consumption

• What compute resources you use, when you use them and where.
• Your usage pattern - how many instances you consume on a hourly basis, when those hours are used, where, and what are the instance types.
• Your compute consumption trends and seasonality.

Determine if what you consume is really what you need

• How well the your compute resources are utilized, if you are wasting resources, or have under-provisioned resources or need to add more resources to your deployment.
• Who is the “customer” for your resources, what is the ROI priority that dictates the Service Level of your business.

Determine how your future compute consumption will look

• Gather your business  requirements for the period being planned.
• Estimate your resource needs beyond organic growth and how they will evolve through the duration of reserved instances.

Determine what type of RIs will be more cost effective for you

Based on your usage patterns identified in the planning phase, identify what types of RIs you need  (instance type, AWS Availability Zones , platform and RI-type).

Resell RIs at the AWS Reserved Instance Market Place

• Identify changes in your resource consumption, needs and or usage patterns that cause RIs to become underutilized.
• Determine if this is a steady state or if other workloads cannot be deployed to utilize available capacity.
• Sell the RIs you no longer need at the AWS Reserved Instance Marketplace.
• Track RI expiration.
• Determine if a replacement is needed.
