Today, we are introducing volume-based tiered pricing for Vended logs in CloudWatch Logs, effective January 1, 2018. Vended logs are logs that are natively published by AWS services on behalf of the customer. VPC Flow logs is the first Vended log type that will benefit from this tiered model. However, more AWS Service log types will be added to Vended Logs in the future.
CloudWatch Vended logs tiered pricing starts at 10 TB (or 10,240 GB). Usage from 10TB to 30TB (30,720 GB) will benefit from a 50% discount on ingestion price in every region. Usage from 30TB to 50TB (51,200 GB) will benefit from an 80% discount and finally, any usage above 50TB will benefit from a 90% discount on ingestion price in every region. Below is the tiered pricing for US East (N. Virginia).
$0.50 per GB for the first 10TB of vended log data ingested
$0.25 per GB for the next 20TB of vended log data ingested
$0.10 per GB for the next 20TB of vended log data ingested
$0.05 per GB for vended log data ingested over 50TB
Today's price drop continues the AWS tradition of reducing our costs and passing the savings along to our customers. This new pricing will be reflected on the Amazon CloudWatch pricing page, available in all public regions.
