Pay only for what you use. There is no minimum fee. You will be charged at the end of the month for your usage. Estimate your monthly bill using the AWS Simple Monthly Calculator.
For Amazon CloudWatch metrics and alarms, each partial month is billed on a pro rata basis, hourly.
AWS GovCloud is an AWS Region designed to allow U.S. government agencies and contractors to move more sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. For pricing and more information on the new AWS GovCloud Region, please visit the AWS GovCloud Web Page.
