Being held hostage by your AWS bill?
We’ve saved our clients…
If your AWS bill keeps rising — and your blood pressure is doing the same — then you should think about working with us.
Why choose us over “the competition”?
DIYing landed you here. SaaS can’t do what we do. Giant consulting firms will fee you to death. And AWS… well, they’re not exactly famous for their support.
Here’s 4 reasons to work with The Duckbill Group:
When you work with us, you can be sure that we always have your best interests in mind. We don’t partner with any cost optimization vendors. We don’t help AWS close deals. Heck, we’re not even AWS partners. We don’t get a dime from anyone for recommending you do something. We work for you.
AWS’s Cost Explorer and many cloud cost optimization vendors are fantastic at analyzing savings improvements like Reserved Instance purchase opportunities, resizing of over-spec’d instances to more cost-efficient sizes, and identifying idle EBS volumes. Where these solutions really suck? They have zero context about your business. So you often end up with little more than a list of changes you can’t actually make, because they don’t reflect the reality of your organization’s infrastructure
No one likes a bone-dry, 80-page report of Yet More Stuff to Implement. More importantly, no one has time to read those — let alone put them to use. That’s why we focus on the big wins, not the minutiae. We give you a concrete plan that considers your current architecture and your future goals.
We only bill one way: fixed-fee. You’ll always know what our help will cost before you sign anything, and if you’re not thrilled with our work, we’ll refund every cent. We’ve worked with dozens of clients collectively spending over $1B on AWS, and no one has ever asked for a refund.
That’s not usually a quality you find in cloud services consulting, so we had to tell you about it.
