With Amazon FSx for Lustre, you pay only for the resources you use. There are no minimum fees or set-up charges.
Scratch: For short-term or scratch FSx for Lustre file systems, you pay for your use of a file system based on its storage capacity measured in gigabyte-months (GB-Months).
Persistent: For persistent storage or longer-term file systems, you pay for your use of a file system based on its storage capacity measured in gigabytes-months (GB-Months). FSx for Lustre offers three tiers of performance options for your file system.
Backups: For backup storage, you pay for the amount of backup data stored, measured in gigabytes-months (GB-Months). Backups are incremental, which means only the changes after your most recent backup are saved, so you save on storage costs by not duplicating data.
Standard data transfer fees apply for transferring data between AWS Availability Zones (inter-AZ access).
Different storage options are available based on the redundancy level and the level of throughput desired per TB of storage provisioned
