CloudFront Security Savings Bundle

Self-service pricing plan that combines CloudFront with benefits for AWS WAF to provide significant savings in exchange for a monthly spend commitment for a 1 year term. 

If you are using an AWS origin, effective December 1, 2014, data transferred from origin to edge locations (Amazon CloudFront "origin fetches") will be free of charge.

Requests for Origin Shield, Invalidations, Field Level Encryption, Real-time log and Dedicated IP custom SSL certificates associated with a CloudFront distribution are priced as shown below.

AWS Free Usage Tier

As part of the AWS Free Usage Tier, you can get started with Amazon CloudFront for free. Upon sign-up, new AWS customers receive 50 GB Data Transfer Out and 2,000,000 HTTP and HTTPS Requests, and 2,000,000 CloudFront Function invocations each month for one year.

Your usage for the free tier is calculated each month, is aggregated across all AWS edge locations, and is automatically applied to your bill – unused monthly usage will not roll over. Restrictions apply; see offer terms for more details.

We charge less where our costs are less, thus some prices vary across geographic regions and are based on the edge location through which your content is served. There may be higher fees associated with any new edge locations we add to the CloudFront network in the future. Usage tiers for data transfer are measured separately for each geographic region. The prices above are exclusive of applicable taxes, fees, or similar governmental charges, if any exist, except as otherwise noted. The prices for usage out of Australia edge locations are exclusive of Australia Goods and Services Tax (GST). For customers with a Japanese billing address, use of the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region is subject to Japanese Consumption Tax. Learn more >>

Origin Shield requests
Origin Shield request fees are charged based on where the Origin Shield Region is configured, not where content is served from Amazon CloudFront's edge locations. Origin Shield is charged as a request fee for each request that goes to Origin Shield as an incremental layer, see Estimating Origin Shield costs in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide. 

If you are interested in using Origin Shield in a multi-CDN architecture, and have discounted pricing, contact us or your AWS sales representative for more information. Additional charges may apply.

Invalidation requests
No additional charge for the first 1,000 paths requested for invalidation each month. Thereafter, $0.005 per path requested for invalidation.

Note: A path listed in your invalidation request represents the URL (or multiple URLs if the path contains a wildcard character) of the object(s) you want to invalidate from CloudFront cache. For more information about invalidation, see Invalidating Objects in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.

Field Level Encryption requests
Field-level encryption is charged based on the number of requests that need the additional encryption; you pay $0.02 for every 10,000 requests that CloudFront encrypts using field-level encryption in addition to the standard HTTPS request fee.

Real-time log requests
Real-time logs are charged based on the number of log lines that are generated; you pay $0.01 for every 1,000,000 log lines that CloudFront publishes to your log destination.

Dedicated IP custom SSL
You pay $600 per month for each custom SSL certificate associated with one or more CloudFront distributions using the Dedicated IP version of custom SSL certificate support. This monthly fee is pro-rated by the hour. For example, if you had your custom SSL certificate associated with at least one CloudFront distribution for just 24 hours (i.e. 1 day) in the month of June, your total charge for using the custom SSL certificate feature in June will be (1 day / 30 days) * $600 = $20. For other SSL options, please visit the CloudFront Custom SSL detail page.

Origin server to Amazon CloudFront (origin fetches)
Amazon CloudFront requires you to store the original, definitive version of your content in an origin server. With Amazon CloudFront, you can use an AWS origin (e.g., Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, Elastic Load Balancing, etc.) or your own server as the origin server. You are responsible for the separate fees you accrue for your origin server.

If you are using an AWS origin, effective December 1, 2014, data transferred from origin to edge locations (Amazon CloudFront "origin fetches") will be free of charge. This applies to data transfer from all AWS regions to all global CloudFront edge locations. Data transfer out from AWS services for all non-origin fetch traffic to CloudFront will incur their respective regional data transfer out charges. Pricing for all AWS services is available here.

Amazon CloudFront to origin server
Data Transfer out of Amazon CloudFront to your origin server, such as POST and PUT requests or WebSocket traffic flowing from the client to WebSocket server, will be billed at the “Regional Data Transfer Out to Origin” rates listed in the Regional Data Transfer Out to Origin (per GB) table.

WebSocket pricing
There is no additional charge for sending data over the WebSocket protocol. Standard charges for using Amazon CloudFront apply. 

Price classes
Price classes provide you an option to lower the prices you pay to deliver content out of Amazon CloudFront. By default, Amazon CloudFront minimizes end user latency by delivering content from its entire global network of edge locations. However, because we charge more where our costs are higher, this means that you pay more to deliver your content with low latency to end-users in some locations. Price Classes let you reduce your delivery prices by excluding Amazon CloudFront’s more expensive edge locations from your Amazon CloudFront distribution.

Amazon CloudFront will deliver your content from edge locations associated with the price class you selected. You will only be charged fees specific to the edge locations from where the content was actually delivered within the selected price class. From time to time, your content may be served from an edge location that is not included in your price class. In these cases, Amazon CloudFront will only charge you the rate for the least expensive location in your selected price class.

If performance is most important to you, you don’t need to do anything; your content will be delivered by our whole network of locations. However, if you wish to use another Price Class, you can configure your distribution through the AWS Management Console or via the Amazon CloudFront API. If you select a price class that does not include all locations, some of your viewers, especially those in geographic locations that are not in your price class, may experience higher latency than if your content were being served from all Amazon CloudFront locations.

The table below lists the groupings for each Amazon CloudFront Price Class. Learn more about how to set a Price Class in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.

CloudFront Security Savings Bundle

The CloudFront Security Savings Bundle is a flexible self-service pricing plan that helps you save up to 30% on your CloudFront bill in exchange for a monthly spend commitment for a 1 year term.  This savings is not limited to data delivered by CloudFront, but applies to all CloudFront usage types including CloudFront Functions and Lambda@Edge. The CloudFront Security Savings Bundle also includes free AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall) usage up to 10% of your committed amount. 

Pricing Example
With CloudFront Security Savings Bundle, you have the flexibility to choose your own monthly commitment that best meets your workloads and maximize savings. Unused monthly credits will not carry over to subsequent months. Standard CloudFront and WAF charges apply for any usage beyond what is covered by the CloudFront Security Savings Bundle. 

Example 1: You purchase one CloudFront Security Savings Bundle with a monthly commitment of $70 which will cover $100 of CloudFront usage (a 30% discount). Additionally, you can take advantage of AWS WAF to protect your web application against common web exploits.  The Savings Bundle in this example would also cover up to $7 of AWS WAF charges at no additional charge each month that could be used to cover up to 11.6M WAF requests. 

Monthly bundle commitment charges:  You will see a monthly charge of $70 listed under CloudFront Security Bundle section of your bill.
CloudFront usage charges: You will see the break out of all your CloudFront usage charges including for data transfer, requests, CloudFront Functions, and Lambda@Edge. As an example, say these charges totaled to $105.  You will see a credit of $100 listed as Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle.  The total CloudFront portion of your bill will show $5. 
WAF usage charges: You will see the break out of all of your WAF usage charges including global requests, web ACL, and rules for protecting your CloudFront resources. As an example, say these charges totaled $15.  You will see a credit of $7 listed as Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle.  The total WAF portion of your bill will show  $8.
 
Your monthly charges would total to $83 for the month based on the following break-out:
+   $70 monthly CloudFront Security Savings Bundle commitment
+   $105 of On Demand CloudFront usage (data transfer, requests, CloudFront Functions, and Lambda@Edge)
-   $100 CloudFront Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle
+   15 of WAF usage for protecting CloudFront resources (requests, web ACL, and rules)
-   $7 WAF Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$83 Total monthly charge ($70 CloudFront Security Bundle +$5 CloudFront net charge + $8 WAF net charge )

Example 2: You purchase two CloudFront Security Savings Bundle with a monthly commitment of $70 and $80 for a total monthly commitment of $150.  This would provide a combined benefit that would cover up to  $214.28 ($100 + 114.28 respectively) of CloudFront usage and up to a total of $15 of AWS WAF usage ($7 + 8 respectively).

Monthly bundle commitment charges:  You will see a total of two monthly commitments totaling $150 listed under CloudFront Security Bundle section of your bill, a $70 and $80 monthly charge.
CloudFront usage charges: You will see the break out of all your CloudFront usage charges including for data transfer, requests, CloudFront Functions, and Lambda@Edge. As an example, say these charges totaled to $200.  You will see two credits listed totalling $200 listed as Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle. Note that available credits will only apply up to actual billed usage. The total CloudFront portion of your bill will show $0 since all CloudFront usage charges were covered by the CloudFront Security Savings Bundle.
WAF usage charges: You will see the break out of all of your WAF usage charges including global requests, web ACL, and rules for protecting your CloudFront resources. As an example, say these charges totaled $12.  You will see a credit of $12 listed as Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle.  Note that available credits will only apply up to actual billed usage. The total WAF portion of your bill will show $0 since all WAF charges were were covered by the CloudFront Security Savings Bundle
 
Your monthly charges would total to $150 for the month since all of your CloudFront and WAF usage was covered by the CloudFront Security Saving Bundle:
+   $70 monthly CloudFront Security Savings Bundle commitment 
+   $80 monthly CloudFront Security Savings Bundle commitment 
+   $200 of On Demand CloudFront usage (data transfer, requests, CloudFront Functions, and Lambda@Edge)
-   $200 CloudFront Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle
+   $12 of WAF usage for protecting CloudFront resources (requests, web ACL, and rules)
-   $12 WAF Usage covered by CloudFront Security Savings Bundle
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$150 Total monthly charge ($150 CloudFront Security Bundle +$0 CloudFront net charge + $0 WAF net charge)

CloudFront Functions Pricing Details

You are charged for the total number of invocations across all your functions. CloudFront Functions counts an invocation each time it starts executing in response to a CloudFront event globally.

Invocation pricing is $0.10 per 1 million invocations ($0.0000001 per request).

CloudFront Functions Pricing Example

If your CloudFront distribution used a viewer request and a viewer response function on each request, each request to CloudFront would invoke 2 functions. If there were 5 million CloudFront requests in one month, CloudFront Functions would execute 10 million times that month. Your CloudFront Function charges would be calculated as follows:

Monthly request charges

The monthly request price is $0.10 per 1 million Invocations.

Monthly request charges = 10M * $0.1/M = $1.00

Lambda@Edge Pricing Details

There is no free tier for Lambda@Edge at this time.

You are charged for the total number of requests across all your functions. Lambda@Edge counts a request each time it starts executing in response to a CloudFront event globally.

Request pricing is $0.60 per 1 million requests ($0.0000006 per request).

Duration is calculated from the time your code begins executing until it returns or otherwise terminates. You are charged $0.00005001 for every GB-second used. For instance, if you allocate 128MB of memory available per execution with your Lambda@Edge function, then your duration charge will be $0.00000625125 for every 128MB-second used. Note that Lambda@Edge functions are metered at a granularity of 1ms.

Requests

$0.60 PER 1M REQUESTS

$0.0000006 per request

Duration

$0.00000625125 FOR EVERY 128MB-SECOND

Lambda@Edge functions are metered at a granularity of 1ms

Lambda@Edge Pricing Example

If your Lambda@Edge function executed 10 million times in one month, and it ran for 10ms each time, your charges would be calculated as follows:

Monthly compute charges

The monthly compute price is $0.00000625125 per 128MB-second

Total compute (seconds) = 10M * (0.01sec) = 100,000 seconds

Monthly compute charges = 100,000 * $0.00000625125 = $0.63

Monthly request charges

The monthly request price is $0.60 per 1 million requests.

Monthly request charges = 10M * $0.6/M = $6.00

Total monthly charges

Total charges = Compute charges + Request charges = $0.63 + $6.00 = $6.63 per month
