Cutting my AWS S3 bill in half using S3 Lifecycles

Hi all,

I've been using AWS S3 for many years and am no stranger to some pretty jaw dropping S3 bills. I recently learned about S3 Lifecycle Rules and was excited to learn I can greatly reduce my costs by migrating files to certain 'Tiers' (Standard, Intelligent, Glacier to name a few).

Using this approach, I've managed to cut a $6,000 / month bill to just under $2250.

Theres a bit of a learning curve regarding how Lifecycle Rules work and how to set them up. I've created a video summarizing how it works (with a step by step tutorial coming soon).

Video is available here: Hope this helps and I'm happy to field any questions.
