Why Are You Still Paying Retail Prices?!
AWS Morning Brief
03.26.2021
24 Minutes
Join Pete and Jesse as they continue the Unconventional Guide to AWS Cost Management with a conversation about why you shouldn’t be paying retail prices for AWS services. They touch upon why every AWS customer gets an account manager regardless of how much they’re spending, why Amazon doesn’t want you spending money wastefully in AWS, the magic number at which your AWS account manager will reach out to you and why you should be the one to initiate the conversation anyway, how account managers want to save you money but how there are only so many internal levers to pull, how you shouldn’t use “we’re going to move to another provider” as a bargaining chip unless you can actually move away from AWS within a week, and more.
