ASG EC2 Manual Retyping

Opportunity Name:

ASG EC2 Manual Retyping

AWS Resource Type:

EC2 instance

Opportunity Description:

The Finder optimizes ASG EC2 instances by evaluating instance attributes and capacity metrics. It uses AWS Compute Optimizer to find the optimal resource configurations. It focuses on retyping opportunities, including IAC-governed instances and those employing attribute-based type selections, recommending Graviton, AMD, and the latest generation instances. Spot instances are excluded.

Criteria for identifying the opportunity:

The criteria for identifying optimization opportunities are: EC2 instances that are part of an Auto Scaling Group (ASG) and have a recommendation from the Compute Optimizer. Instances that are managed using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) should be included. Instances that select their type based on attributes should also be included.

Potential savings (range in % on annual basis):

We estimate cost reduction for retyping based on the % reduction of on-demand costs.

What happens when the Fixer is executed?

The instance type will be changed. The fix will be applied manually, either by the customer or by the Professional Services.

Is it possible to rollback once CloudFix implements the fixer?

Yes, but the rollback will be applied manually, either by the customer or by the Professional Services.

Can CloudFix implement the fix automatically once I accept the recommendation?

No, this is an opportunity with a manual fix.

Does this fix require downtime?

Changing EC2 instance types can require stopping and restarting the instance, potentially causing downtime.
