Cost to complete project: There are no charges for setting up AWS Direct Connect. Once the connection is established, charges will be incurred for data transfer and pricing per port-hour.
Monthly billing estimate: The total cost of maintaining your AWS Direct Connect link to your on-premises environment will vary depending on the volume of data transfer out of AWS and the region you select. Data transfer pricing over Direct Connect is lower than data transfer pricing over the internet. For example, if you order a 1GB connection to the US East region - Virginia and you expect to transfer 1TB out on a monthly basis, the total cost would be $236 per month. To estimate costs tailored to your needs, use the AWS Pricing Calculator.
AWS pricing is based on your usage of each individual service. The total combined usage of each service will create your monthly bill. This project uses one AWS service. Explore the tab below to learn what it does and how it affects your bill.
