About this Hands-on Lab

Our organization, Flying Bears, Inc., has some cost overage issues, and your team has been notified of instances not being used at all outside of the Monday through Friday working hours. We will review usage and determine the best schedule to implement using Instance Scheduler. We will review the cost changes using the AWS Pricing Calculator with the updated hours that were specified in our schedule. We will configure the schedule in Instance Scheduler to reflect the schedule we have chosen.
