Cost to complete the project:  The estimated cost to complete this project is $0.00. This cost assumes that you are within the AWS Free Tier limits, you follow the recommended configurations, and that you terminate all resources within 1 hour of completing the project. Your use case may require different configurations that can impact your bill. Use the Simple Monthly Calculator to estimate costs tailored for your needs

Monthly billing estimate: The total cost of building an Amazon Redshift data warehouse will vary depending on your usage and configuration settings. Using the default configuration recommended in this guide, it will typically cost $0.00/month if you are within the AWS Free Tier limits and $183.04/month if you are outside the limits.

Inidividual service usage and cost: AWS pricing is based on your usage of each individual service. The total combined usage of each service will create your monthly bill. Explore the tabs below to learn what each service does and how it affects your bill.

  • Amazon Redshift

    Product Description: Amazon Redshift is a fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse that makes it simple and cost-effective to analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools.

    How Pricing Works: Amazon Redshift pricing is based on four components: the node types you choose (dense compute or dense storage), the number of nodes, the region your clusters are based in and the pricing model you select (on-demand or reserved). For more information, see Amazon Redshift pricing.

    Cost Estimate: This project will set up an environment that runs on single node dc1.large cluster in US-West-2. This will cost approximately $183/month if you are outside the AWS Free Tier limits.

  • Amazon S3

    Product Description: Amazon S3 provides secure, durable, and highly-scalable cloud storage for the objects that make up your static website. Examples of objects you can store include HTML pages, CSS files, images, videos, and JavaScript. Amazon S3 makes it is easy to use object storage with a simple web interface to store and retrieve data from anywhere on the web, meaning that your website will be reliably available to all your visitors. 

    How Pricing Works: S3 Pricing is based on five components: the type of S3 storage you use, where you store your website content (e.g. US East vs. Asia Pacific - Sydney), the amount you store, the number of requests you or your users make to store new content or retrieve the content, and the amount of data that is transferred from S3 to you or your users. For more infromation, see Amazon S3 pricing.

    Cost Estimate: This project uses 1GB of object storage per month on Amazon S3. This will cost approximately $0.04/month in US-West-2 if you are outside the AWS Free Tier limits.
