Elastic Kubernetes Service cost saving tips Optimize your Elastic Kubernetes Service costs with these tips

#1

Use Fargate

Rather than EC2, Fargate avoids having to manage servers. This saves cost as you only have to pay for actual container usage.

#2

Right-size containers

Reducing memory and CPU requirements in task definitions and container images can lead to substantial cost savings. Avoid oversized containers.

#3

Use Fargate Spot

Maximise underused capacity by setting a maximum price and allow Fargate to utilise available Spot capacity. This can lead to discounts of 90% on standard pricing.

About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.

About Elastic Kubernetes Service Service information & pricing

About Elastic Kubernetes Service

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed solution facilitating Kubernetes operation in AWS cloud and on-premises data centers. It automates node management, container scheduling, application availability, and cluster data storage. EKS utilizes AWS for performance, scalability, reliability, and security with integrated networking/security services. It further supports easy deployment to AWS Outposts, VMs, or bare metal servers, ensuring a consistent Kubernetes solution on-premises.

Elastic Kubernetes Service pricing

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) charges $0.10 per hour for each EKS cluster created. The cost of running EKS on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) or AWS Fargate, and on-premises using AWS Outposts depends on the AWS resources created. Users only pay for what they use. AWS Fargate pricing depends on vCPU and memory resources used. EKS on AWS Outposts also charges $0.10 per hour per cluster.
