How we work

Services

We work for you, not AWS.

When you work with us, you can rest assured we have your best interests in mind. We don’t partner with any cost optimization vendors, we don’t help AWS close deals, and we’re not even AWS partners. We don’t receive a dime from anyone for recommending you do something. We work for you.

Services

You can’t gain business insight via API.

AWS’s Cost Explorer and many cloud cost optimization vendors are fantastic at analyzing savings improvements such as Reserved Instance purchase opportunities, resizing of over-spec’d instances to more cost-efficient sizes, and identifying idle EBS volumes. What they lack, however, is context about your business, and often give you little more than a list of changes to make that don’t reflect the reality of your organization’s infrastructure.

Our findings aren’t a mile long.

No one likes an 80 page report of yet-more-things to implement, and that’s why we do something different. We focus on the big wins, not the minutiae. We give you a concrete set of next steps and a plan for the future that shows consideration for your goals and architecture,

Report Icon

We don’t want a percentage of your bill.

We only bill one way: fixed fee. You’ll always know what our help will cost before you sign anything, and if you’re not thrilled with our work, we’ll refund every cent.

Cost Optimization

The bill is climbing and you don’t entirely know why. Imagine if you had an analysis of what you’re spending money on that went beyond what Amazon’s Trusted Advisor or other SaaS offerings provided. Not just a report that broke down AWS spend based upon team and environment, but a real, proper, in-depth analysis of your bill, with recommendations that spoke to how your business works–with actionable next steps. You’d be able to address what’s in your AWS environment today, rather than guessing and hoping you’re in the same ballpark.

What Our Clients are Saying

Quote Icon We actually wish we had engaged Corey sooner. We saved the company a lot of money for very little effort, without needing to spend weeks of time researching into the issues. As soon as you can do 20 minutes of work to save your company hundreds of thousands of dollars, you feel a sense of regret that you didn’t do it earlier.

Quote Icon The Duckbill Group came highly recommended, yet exceeded all our expectations. Mike and Corey know more about how AWS billing works than anyone else in the world, including all of AWS. In just a few weeks they helped us reclaim 10% of our entire operating budget. Best contracting money I have ever spent.

Quote Icon Now that we know exactly what each business unit spends in AWS, we can plan with far greater accuracy and pre-purchase resources at a reduced price. That allows us to trim the bill by 20-30%.
