Description: NOTE: In this project, the Storage Gateway service automatically manages Amazon S3 for you when you use a virtual tape. This section provide additional background.
How Pricing Works: Amazon S3 pricing is based on five components: the type of Amazon S3 storage you use, where you store your objects (e.g. US East vs. Asia Pacific - Sydney), the amount of data you store, the number of requests made to store or retrieve objects, and data transfer fees. For more details, see Amazon S3 Pricing.
Example: Let's say you are using Amazon S3 Standard Storage in the US East (N. Virginia) region. To store 1 TB of content, you’d pay $0.023 per month.
PUT, COPY, and POST requests cost $0.005/1000 requests; GET and all others are $0.004/10,000 requests
Data transfers in are free. Transfers within region are free and to other regions are $0.020/GB. Transfers out to the Internet start at $0.090 after the first 1 TB and scale up after 10 TB.
