Effective July 1, 2021, AWS is reducing data processing charges for VPC Interface Endpoints (powered by AWS PrivateLink). The new tiered pricing will reduce the costs for accessing high-volume, data intensive services over AWS PrivateLink. AWS PrivateLink enables customers to access AWS services or any other service hosted on AWS in a secure and scalable manner, while keeping all the network traffic within the AWS network. 

Prior to this change, customers paid a flat rate of $0.01 per GB for data processed over VPC Interface Endpoints. With the new pricing, customers who access data-intensive AWS services, like Amazon S3 and Amazon Kinesis, or 3rd party service offerings over VPC Interface Endpoints can pay as low as $0.004 per GB for data processing. The reduced prices will be based on the total monthly volume of data processed by all VPC Interface Endpoints in an AWS Region. The new pricing is as follows:

Data Processed (per month) Old Pricing (per GB) New Pricing (per GB)
First 1 PB
$0.01 $0.01
Next 4 PB $0.01 $0.006
Anything over 5 PB $0.01 $0.004

This new pricing is applicable to all AWS Regions. You do not need to make any changes to your VPC Interface Endpoints to benefit from the price reduction. Visit here to learn more about AWS PrivateLink.
