Optimize Costs And Build A Secure Cloud Platform With AWS Cost and Security Optimisation Clinics


Read More/Less

Digital education is the new normal. Even with physical classrooms, hybrid models will redefine the way we teach and learn.

Today, EdTech solutions are all set to scale up and meet consumers’ increasing, dynamic demands. The foundation pillar for efficient and scalable online education is cloud-based delivery. With increased cloud usage to meet the scale of country like India, the cost is bound to increase, and security becomes paramount.

Users share not just their academics but also personal and sensitive information that is stored on the platform they use (usually in the cloud), and it is the responsibility of EdTech solution providers to ensure that their data is safe through stringent security measures. With increasing cloud-based customers, the need for hack-proof solutions is also growing.

EdTech companies are working hard to ensure the data safety of their customers. At the same time, this may require a lot of security RnD, and a team dedicated to maintaining the security, thus, a lot of funds. Many EdTechs may neglect security and focus on sales and development to save costs & time. However, it is possible to have a reliable, secure and cost-efficient infrastructure that can offer scalability on demand. AWS Cloud is one such leading cloud infrastructure provider that is now getting extremely popular amongst EdTechs.

Since cloud operational cost and security are very crucial and tricky to understand and implement, especially for large scale apps, AWS is hosting specialised virtual sessions called “AWS Cost and Security Optimisation Clinics for EdTechs“. These virtual sessions focus on helping EdTech businesses and tech leaders develop and manage their EdTech solutions more efficiently on the cloud.

Lead by AWS solution experts, the sessions are ideal for learning the best practices and finding approach to maximise deliverability, reliability, capability & security while optimising the cost . The attendees get an opportunity to interact and learn from the industry experts and clear all their doubts about the cloud based solution offerings by AWS.

Cost Optimisation Clinics

The online session on cost optimisation outlines various tools and techniques for cost-efficient architecture, touching upon multiple required resources, matching supply with demand, and best practices for cloud financial management, expenditure, and usage awareness & optimisation over time. It also discusses how EdTech companies can reduce cloud costs and reinvest in innovation for the future of education.

The sessions also highlight the cost optimisation framework of AWS services built on five key pillars, i.e., operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimisation.

Option 1: Thursday, 17 February, 3:00PM – 4:00PM (IST)

Option 2: Thursday, 3 March, 3:00PM – 4:00PM (IST)

Security Optimisation Clinics

The virtual session on security optimisation focuses on how companies assess their secure cloud environment and what practices suit their needs. The session focuses on common security gaps and the best methods to mitigate them as you build a robust security system. The session also covers critical information on the AWS shared responsibility model, tools to monitor the AWS environment’s workload footprint, and the assessment approach in the AWS environment. The session will give insights into cloud security managed by the customers – case studies.

Option 1: Thursday, 24 February, 3:00PM – 4:00PM (IST)

Option 2: Thursday, 10 March, 3:00PM – 4:00PM (IST)

These clinics are a must for EdTech companies and leaders to learn how AWS’ services can amplify their solutions and change the game for education institutes with improved security and without the cost burden.
