Learn how Sedai autonomously optimizes your AWS storage resources, including EBS, EFS, and S3.
Sedai intelligently optimizes your AWS storage resources to reduce costs for your storage infrastructure, including Elastic Block Store (EBS), Elastic File System (EFS), and Simple Storage Service (S3).


Sedai autonomously optimizes EBS volumes to decrease costs. This is achieved by:
  1. 1.
    Identifying underutilized volumes: Sedai analyzes your EBS volumes and identifies those underutilized or over-provisioned.
  2. 2.
    Right-sizing volumes: Sedai determines the optimal volume size and type, ensuring you only pay for the resources you need.
To learn more about EBS, visit AWS EBS docs.


Sedai optimizes your EFS resources to reduce costs by managing two key aspects:
  1. 1.
    Infrequent Access transition: Sedai analyzes your EFS file systems to determine the optimal time to transition in and out of Infrequent Access, a storage class that offers lower storage costs for files accessed infrequently.
  2. 2.
    Throughput mode recommendations: Sedai determines the most effective throughput mode for your EFS file systems to ensure optimal performance and cost-efficiency. The three throughput modes are:
    1. 1.
      Provisioned: Guarantees specified throughput regardless of data volume
    2. 2.
      Elastic: Dynamically scales to meet workload demands
    3. 3.
      Bursting: Accommodates occasional spikes in demand when needed while keeping costs lower during periods of inactivity

Sedai reduces your S3 costs by leveraging Intelligent-Tiering and then recommending transition to Archive Access:
  1. 1.
    Intelligent-Tiering: Sedai autonomously optimizes your S3 buckets by switching all contained objects to the Intelligent-Tiering storage class. This class automatically shifts objects between Standard and Archive tiers based on access patterns, ensuring cost-efficiency without compromising availability.
  2. 2.
    Archive Access Transition: After migrating your buckets to the Intelligent-Tiering storage class, Sedai generates recommendations for transitioning rarely accessed buckets to Archive Access and Deep Archive Access tiers.
While autonomous is not available for Archive Access Transition, you can manually configure this in the AWS console. Follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    Sign in to the AWS Management Console using your credentials.
  2. 2.
    Open the S3 Console by searching for "S3" in the search bar and selecting it.
  3. 3.
    Select the S3 bucket for which you want to configure Archive Access.
  4. 4.
    Navigate to the Properties tab.
  5. 5.
    Scroll to Intelligent-Tiering Archive Configurations and select Create Configuration.
  6. 6.
    Name your configuration and apply it to all objects in the bucket.
  7. 7.
    Select the checkboxes for Archive Access Tier and Deep Archive Access Tier, and input the number of days until transition that Sedai has recommended for each.
  8. 8.
    Save your Archive Access configuration.
