What are the expected savings?

unusd.cloud is a SaaS product with different subscription plans.


👷 DevOps

Context: You are a startup, working on a product with a team of 2 DevOps, and 2 AWS Accounts (dev and prod).

During testing and development phase, the following resources were mistakenly left running for one month

  • 3 EC2 Instances - m5.large - $78 * 3 = $234
  • 3 Detached EBS Volumes - gp2 8 GB SSD - $0.11 * 8 * 3 = $2.64
  • 1 RDS Database - t3.medium (Aurora) = $64.2
  • 3 Detached EIPs - $3.6 * 3 = $10.8

Total waste: $311.6 monthly or $3,739.68 yearly

With unusd.cloud you were able to detect this waste of unused assets quickly and take action to shut down these instances.


🧑‍🔬 Data Scientists & Data Engineers

Context: Medium-sized business, with a squad dedicated to AI/ML with 2 Data Engineers and 3 Data Scientists. They use an AWS Account for experimentations and data exploration (a lab account).

  • 15 SageMaker Notebooks - 5 data scientist(s) * 3 Notebook = 15 – 10800 hours/month * $0.478/hour = $5162.40
  • 3 Glue DevEndpoints - 5 DPU - $0.44 * 720 hours * 5 * 3 = $4752
  • 2 Redshift Clusters - dc2.large - 2 nodes - $365 * 2 = $730 (without any transfer, storage, or spectrum costs)

Total waste: $10,644.4 monthly or $127,732.8 yearly


🤓 Developers

Context:

  • 10 EC2 Instances - c5.2xlarge – $248 * 5 = $1240 (without any EBS Volumes or Snapshot)
  • 5 RDS Database - db.m5.xlarge (Aurora) = $246.24 * 5 = $1231.2
  • 10 Detached EIPs - $3.6 * 10 = $36

Total waste: $2,507.2 monthly or $30,086.4 yearly


👩‍💻 Large Enterprise

Context:

  • 200 EC2 Instances - c5.2xlarge – $248 * 200 = $49600 (without any EBS Volumes or Snapshot)
  • 20 Redshift Clusters – dc2.large - 2 nodes - $365 * 20 = $7300 (without any transfer, storage, or spectrum costs)
  • 35 Detached EIPs - $3.6 * 35 = $126
  • 200 Detached EBS Volumes - gp2 60 GB SSD - $0.11 * 60 * 200 = $1320

Total waste: $58,346 monthly or $700,152 yearly
