Going Over My Second Amazon Bill

This is the last time I’m doing this, I swear. The difference this time is that I haven’t collaborated with someone else to generate a traffic spike. Knowing that, here’s the real cost per month of me doing this.

Put simply: 8¢. I won’t be explaining everything like I did before , so read that to get an overview of what each line item is.

Billing By Service

Data Transfer

At 0.922 GB out, that’s $0.922 \times 0.09 = 0.08298$, so 8¢ total.

Simple Storage Service

Storage

$0.023 per GB for the first 50 TB, I’m storing 159.4 MB.

$0.160 \times 0.023 = 0.00368$, no charge.

Analytics

$0.10 per 1 million objects monitored, I’m monitoring 85.

$85 \div 1,000,000 = 0.000085$, $0.000085 \times 0.10 = 0.0000085$, no charge.

Requests Tier 1

$0.005 per 1,000 PUT, POST, COPY, and LIST requests, I’ve had 757.

$757 \div 1,000 = 0.757$, and $3.44 \times 0.005 = 0.003785$, no charge.

Requests Tier 2

$0.04 per 10,000 GET and all other requests, I’ve had 751.

$751 \div 10,000 = 0.0000751$, $0.0000751 \times 0.004 = 0.0000003$, no charge.

Conclusion

Yes, me offloading some larger objects to S3 is actually really cheap on your average month without anything special going on.
