AWS Pricing

  • There are three fundamental drivers of cost with AWS:
    • Compute
    • Storage
    • Outbound data transfer.
  • AWS offers pay-as-you-go for pricing.

  • For certain services like Amazon EC2, Amazon EMR, and Amazon RDS, you can invest in reserved capacity. With Reserved Instances, you can save up to 75% over equivalent on-demand capacity. When you buy Reserved Instances, the larger the upfront payment, the greater the discount.
    • With the All Upfront option, you pay for the entire Reserved Instance term with one upfront payment. This option provides you with the largest discount compared to On-Demand instance pricing.
    • With the Partial Upfront option, you make a low upfront payment and are then charged a discounted hourly rate for the instance for the duration of the Reserved Instance term.
    • The No Upfront option does not require any upfront payment and provides a discounted hourly rate for the duration of the term.
  • There are also volume-based discounts for services such as Amazon S3.
