Standalone EC2 Manual Retyping

Opportunity Name:

Standalone EC2 Manual Retyping

AWS Resource Type:

EC2 instance

Opportunity Description:

The new finder identifies opportunities for manual retyping of standalone EC2 instances (like transitioning from x86 to Graviton). Utilizing AWS Compute Optimizer, it provides data-driven recommendations for optimal performance at reduced costs. Prioritizing direct cost savings, the finder excludes high-risk suggestions such as rightsizing to nano/micro instances to ensure reliability.

Criteria for identifying the opportunity:

The criteria for identifying optimization opportunities are: Standalone EC2 instances - no ECS, RDS, ASG, etc Employ CUR Query: Utilize the CUR query to determine standalone EC2 instances. Only recommendation changes leading to cost reductions. Exclude spot instances, nano/micro instances and others with elevated risk.

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.
