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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LOL that was only six years ago ... don't let your dreams stay dreams: https://hyperbo.la/lifestream/51/ #aws

Even more cost savings: dynamically provisioned bastion cloudformation stack #terraform #aws

More cost savings. RAM footprint of a hyperbola backend is 143MB. Switch from t2.micro to t2.nano #aws #win

Switch from 3 to 2 backend machines. 1 is enough to handle the load I get, so use the bare minimum for redundancy #aws

Removed dependency on redis by switching to a django-provided database-as-cache adapter. My redis cluster was used only for admin sessions and caching a sidebar on the lifestream page. Unnecessary overhead #aws

06:26 utc nov 04 2017 permalink

Switched DB instance type from db.t2.small to db.t2.micro. From running my linode I know that MySQL never used more than ~400MB of RAM so I knew this was safe. My database is tiny #aws

Switched from Aurora to a multi-az RDS instance. I don't need the complex topologies that aurora allows and it forced me to use an overprovisioned instance type #aws

Now that I've shown I can go all out with the most expensive #AWS components, today I exercised my cost efficiency and right sizing muscles. I cut my AWS bill in half with the following steps:

3 AZs I feel so alive #aws

DNS is flipped and propagated! Live in #aws! #win

buliding the #aws infra took about 30 commits, two #terraform destroys, and two terraform code rewrites. some fun bits in the following posts

And with post 506, I can now say that hyperbola is hosted on #aws #win
