By Andrew Nhem on September 8, 2016
AWS continues to publish new session summaries on the official re:Invent 2016 Session Planner. We curated a few new event highlights and took a peek at a handful of exciting sessions about saving at scale and AWS best practices that we believe can be of value for this year’s attendees.

If you’re interested in attending, registration is still open for the 2016 event.

Work hard, play hard

After a long day of learning new things about AWS, meeting great people, and hearing stories from other AWS users, reward yourself with a good time. Along with the legendary AWS parties and pub crawls, there are a variety of other events that accommodate many styles of “taking a breather”.

For the foodies looking to spice things up, the third-annual Tatonka wing-eating challenge will be the place to do it. For those wanting to get a solid run in during their time in Vegas, there’s also the first-ever re:Invent 5k run. Check out the AWS re:Invent After Hours page to learn more about these and other events.

Saving at Scale with Reserved Instances

Join Cloudability at our upcoming re:Invent session, “ENT307 – Saving at Scale with Reserved Instances”, to learn more about modifying RIs to save big on AWS. We’ll go over how to identify unused hours and modify them to better match changing infrastructures while capturing the most savings possible. Once it’s available, claim your seat using re:Invent’s handy Reserved Seating feature!

The talk will cover how to account for Reserved Instances and their upfront costs, how to centralize and streamline the buying process, and how to choose and optimize the right Reserved Instances to best match your operational needs.
