You are charged for the compute and memory resources used by your application. In addition, if you automate your deployments, you will pay a set monthly fee for each application that covers all automated deployments for that month. If you opt to deploy from source code, you will pay a build fee for the amount of time it takes App Runner to build a container from your source code.
Provisioned container instances
$0.007 / GB-hour*
When your application is deployed, you pay for the memory provisioned in each container instance. Keeping your container instance's memory provisioned when your application is idle ensures it can deliver consistently low millisecond latency
* The pricing of $0.007 / GB-hour is applicable for the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). For the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region, pricing is $0.009 / GB-hour.
Active container instances
$0.064 / vCPU-hour*
$0.007 / GB-hour*
When your application is processing requests, you switch from provisioned container instances to active container instances that consume both memory and compute resources. You pay for the compute and any additional memory counsumed in excess of the memory allocated by your provisioned container instances. App Runner automatically scales the number of active container instances up and down to meet the processing requirements of your application. You can set a maximum limit on the number of active container instances your application uses so that costs do not exceed your budget. When your active container instances are idle, App Runner scales back to your provisioned container instances (the default is 1 provisioned container instance).
All container instance processing is billed per second, rounded up to the next nearest second. There is a one minute minimum charge for vCPU resources every time a provisioned container instance starts processing requests.
* The pricing of $0.007 / GB-hour and $0.064 / vCPU-hour is applicable for the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). For the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region, pricing is $0.009 / GB-hour and $0.081 / vCPU-hour.
How pricing works
With App Runner, you deploy and run your applications in container instances, which consume compute and memory resources. When you create an application in AWS App Runner, you configure the amount of memory and vCPU required for your application to run. You also select concurrency, a scaling metric that represents the maximum number of simultaneous requests that can be processed by an active container instance. When your application is idle, you pay per GB of memory for provisioned container instances which keep your application warm and eliminate cold starts. When requests come in, your application responds in milliseconds, and you pay for the vCPU and memory consumed by your active container instances as your application is processing requests. You are only billed while your application is running, and App Runner makes it easy to pause and resume your application through the console, CLI, or API to help manage your costs. App Runner scales your active container instances up and down automatically to meet the processing demands of your application, and you pay only for the vCPU and memory used.
$1 / application, per month
You can choose to opt-in to automatic deployments, a feature that builds a container image following changes in a source code deployment branch and subsequently triggers a deployment.
$0.005 / build-minute
You will pay a build fee for the amount of time it takes App Runner to build your application from your source code. You pay this build fee only for the first deployment of your application or when there is a change made to the source code.
Using other AWS services & transferring data
You may incur additional charges if your application uses other AWS services or transfers data. For example, if your application uses Amazon CloudWatch logs for application logging, you will be billed for CloudWatch usage.
Data transfer: You are billed at standard AWS data transfer rates.
