After cloud migration, it’s time for cost optimization
By now, you’ve finished the “lift and shift” method of cloud migration —transitioning critical apps and workloads to AWS. And your next move is cloud optimization.
You need to balance the need for 100% uptime with (sometimes lengthy) compliance regulations and a limited cloud budget. This is where N2WS slides in to save the day with built-in cost optimization features.
Put cost-optimization on autopilot with easy data lifecycle management
Gain control of your data with automated archiving policies
Smart storage tiering
Choose the most cost-effective storage tier to meet objectives
Meet compliance demands while maintaining data availability
Archive External EBS Snapshots to S3
Reduce the cost of long-term storage retention with N2WS AnySnap Archiver. Now you can import any existing snapshots and archive them to Amazon S3 —no matter what tool you used to create them.
For a cost-saving boost: you can delete the original snapshots after archiving, saving you even more money in the long run.
Manage Idle Resources
Resource Control allows customers to turn off non-critical EC2 or RDS instances, on demand or on a schedule. Like a light switch for your AWS environment, Resource Control helps you instantly lower compute costs and eliminate cloud waste.
From the N2WS dashboard you can see how much money is saved by turning off instances and achieve real-time savings.
Monitor EBS policy costs
Visualize and understand how storage costs change over time and optimize backup storage (using N2WS Data Lifecycle Management) to align with your budget goals.
See EBS snapshot costs per policy from the N2WS dashboard and build a clearer picture of your storage spend in AWS.
Manage retention archive costs
With compliance regulations, you’re often facing long retention requirements (7+1 years), which can be costly and difficult to manage for large volumes of data —especially with increased pressure on keeping data 100% secure. You also have the option to delete the snapshots after they’re copied, eliminating those costs.
N2WS allows you to automate snapshot archival to Amazon S3, Glacier, or Deep Archive for cost-effective data retention.
