Book Description

Amazon AWS offers a wide array of computing and storage options. Choosing among these options is challenging. Even apparently reasonable decisions can lead to unexpected consequences and costs.

Whether you are a designer, developer, system administrator, or IT manager, the tips presented here will help you tailor AWS to meet your needs while keeping your costs as low as possible.

The guide includes tips on:
• Choosing the right EC2 instance for your application
• When to use (or not use) spot instances
• How to calculate your cost savings with reserved instances
• Using auto-scaling to maximize the efficiency of your EC2 purchases
• Trade-offs between using an AWS service, such as CloudSearch, versus running your own
• Maximizing the benefits of S3 object versioning while keeping costs down
• Exporting large volumes of data without busting your budget

4.0 out of 5 stars A good into to Amazon Web Services January 30, 2014
For those of us not familiar with the details of Amazon Web Services, this book is a great starting point. Being in the Information Technology market, I knew about AWS but never gave it much thought until recently when I had to address that at a high level. As it turns out, Dan's timely publication hit the mark for me because there are a few details that might not be evident from just reading the AWS rate sheet.
