  • How CloudCheckr Makes 1.7 Million EC2 Decisions Easy May 25 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Todd Bernhard, Product Marketing Manager, CloudCheckr
    Choosing to move to the Cloud is a great decision, but it’s the first of many more decisions. You have to choose from 70 instance types, with 14 purchase options, running your choice of 4 operating systems, across dozens of availability zones and regions with distinct choices for tenancy and block storage. When you add it up, there are over a million options. In fact, Gartner has calculated that the number of decisions just for deploying an EC2 instance is over 1.7 million.

    It’s easy to make the wrong decisions and spend too much or be underprepared to meet demand. There’s only one way to make such decisions reliably and efficiently and that is to automate and follow best practices. In this in-depth discussion and demonstration, Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, will show how to use CloudCheckr's Best Practices tool to manage costs.

    Join us for a "Deep Dive" into some of the 450+ Best Practice Checks offered by CloudCheckr to:
