50%+ savings

on your EC2 spend

Usage AI achieves 50%+ average EC2 savings by purchasing the most lucrative deals on the EC2 Reserved Instance Marketplace (3-year no-upfront RIs). Say goodbye to forecasting your EC2 needs since Usage reactively buys and sells reservations in real-time as your needs change, automatically.

Usage AI will flex to your EC2 instance count.

massive savings

57% EC2 Savings, none of the commitment.

Usage AI gets the greatest marketplace discounts available: 3-year RIs with 57% off, and removes the commitment entirely. So you can rest assured you’re getting the greatest possible savings with none of the anxiety of lock-in.

Savings Test
Under the hood

Usage AI buys and sells RIs amongst its customers base on a daily basis. When a customer wants to stop using an RI before the end of its term, Usage AI automatically finds a buyer and sells the RI to that customer.

  • selling

    Usage AI sells RIs at the full Amazon market rate so that customers can continue to maximize savings.

  • fees

    Usage AI uses no-upfront so there's no fee on selling reserved instances by Amazon.

  • method

    Usage AI leverages the EC2 Reserved Instance marketplace to buy and sell reservations.

  • schedule

    Usage AI buys and sells on a daily basis

extreme security

We tread lightly.

Usage AI uses an extremely limited IAM Role to analyze your cloud and buy and sell reservations.
