Storage Optimization is an Ongoing Process

Maintaining a storage architecture that is both right-sized and right-priced is an ongoing process. To get the most efficient use of your storage spend, you should optimize storage on a monthly basis. You can streamline this effort by:

  • Establishing an ongoing mechanism for optimizing storage and setting up storage policies.

  • Monitoring costs closely using AWS cost and reporting tools, such as Cost Explorer, budgets, and detailed billing reports in the Billing and Cost Management console.

  • Enforcing Amazon S3 object tagging and establishing S3 lifecycle policies to continually optimize data storage throughout the data lifecycle.
