Why Your AWS Bill Is Higher Than It Should Be

My firm recently wrapped up a project for an Austin-based sports media company that uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) exclusively for their infrastructure. Like many other small businesses and start-ups, using the cloud for their software deployments has been a no-brainer. The cloud makes capital expenditure a non-issue, eliminates risk, and reduces time-to-market. Big wins all around, and at a cost that compares very well with the build-your-own-server-farm alternative.
