Last month in AWS saw me rack up a bill of US$0.86 and with the terrible US/AUD exchange rate I’m out of pocket a whole AUD$1.30. As im playing around with new technology and integrating various services that AWS provides, I touched a few services this month, and discovered I should probably decommission services I’m not actually using anymore. No surpise to me that I excceded the free tier limits for S3.
Last month in AWS saw me rack up a bill of US$3.52 and while I expected this to be lower compared to last month, it turns out I got a little trigger happy with EC2 and S3. This was primarily due to the Detection Lab infrastructure that I was playing with. EBS stored volumes caused by AMI’s will cause your bill to shoot up quite quickly. I was also still performing some other lab based stuff and introduced SES into my permanent list of services ill be using.
Last month in AWS saw me rack up a bill of $3.40 and I expect this to be much lower next month now that I have abandoned Lightsail. The cost breakdown was as follows: As you can see, I did hit a wide range of services for the month and most of the stuff I played with had a free tier limit applied. Its great for spinning up a lab or three and the cost really was minimal.
