As of last night, all hyperbo.la AWS infrastructure is torn down. https://github.com/lopopolo/hyperbola/pull/111 #aws #terraform #devops #hypstatic

permalink

hyperbola is deployed to GitHub Pages now! Executed via DNS cutover with terraform. Now to destroy the old infrastructure in AWS. #github #hypstatic #aws #terraform #hypstatic

permalink

The AWS infra that the current site runs on is $50 a month I do not need to spend. #aws #cost #hypstatic

permalink

for the past 2ish months I've been slowly working on porting hyperbola to a static site with the ultimate goal of winding down an #aws account

permalink

hyperbola was down for 26 hours because the CA cert bundle on its backing RDS instance was not rotated before the 2015 bundle expired #fail #outage #aws

permalink

Despite all I talk about #aws #ec2, I cannot for the life of me type isntances correctly #fail

permalink

looks like I didn't finalize the deploy in January so I had a few extra AMIs kicking around that I was needlessly paying for #aws #cost #fail #automation

permalink

The true motivation for getting me to mess with hyperbola today was an instance retirement notification from AWS. I had to muck with poetry to cycle my ASG #fail #aws

I'm speaking at DevOpsDays Seattle on April 23. My talk is titled The AWS Billing Machine and Optimizing Cloud Costs. #conference #aws #cost

permalink

The most expensive part of hyperbola's #aws infrastructure is the SSM PrivateLink endpoint in 3 AZs #fail #cost

permalink

Add in some manual #terraform state edits and deleting things in the #aws console and we're recovered #fail #win

permalink

Further #cost optimized my #AWS infra. Saved $3/month by turning off CloudWatch monitoring and making my ASG out of spot instances https://github.com/lopopolo/hyperbola/commit/ffa0e34 #win

permalink

#AWS suggested for us to use a snowball to ship our data to a new region. This is an amazing product, but yea no

permalink

That was easy! hyperbola running on t3s now. #aws #terraform #win

permalink

Saved me $17 a month. My primary #AWS #cost is now my ALB. I'd replace it with an nginx if not for ACM making certs so easy

permalink

Sometimes using the #AWS cost and usage reports is just not fun, mostly due to the myriad of columns being undocumented. #fail

permalink

That was easy. Enabled #AWS Time Sync by adding one ansible role, reading some docs, and redeploying. #win

permalink

Shaved another $35 (40%) off my #AWS bill by disabling the NAT on my app subnets. Yay immutable infrastructure and VPC endpoints #win

permalink

The v0.116.0 deploy was done using a spot instance with packer. A bigger instance for half the price #aws
