Individual 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 Aurora

    Description: Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. An Aurora instance is provisioned as a target database in this project.

    How Pricing Works: RDS Aurora pricing includes four components: number of hours your instance is running, amount of database storage and IOs consumed, backup storage, and data transfer in/out of RDS. For more details, see Amazon Aurora Pricing.

    Example: This project provisions the db.r3.large instance with 10GB storage in US-West-2 (Oregon) region (Single-AZ deployment) with an on-demand pricing model for two hours. The cost for running Aurora with this project is estimated to be $1.78. For a breakdown of Aurora costs, see the Simple Monthly Calculator

     

  • Amazon RDS for Oracle

    Description: Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while managing time-consuming database administration tasks. AWS RDS Oracle Standard Edition One (SE1) with license included option is provisioned as a source database in this project.

    How Pricing Works: RDS Oracle pricing includes four components: number of hours your instance is running, amount of database storage consumed, backup storage, and data transfer in/out of RDS. Also, please note that “License Included" pricing is inclusive of Oracle software license, underlying hardware resources, and Amazon RDS management capabilities. For more information, see Amazon RDS Pricing.

    Example: This project provisions the db.m3.medium instance with 10GB GP2 (General Purpose) storage in the US-West-2 (Oregon) region (Single-AZ deployment). With an on-demand pricing model, your charge will be $0.226 per hour for RDS Oracle SE2 instance (license included) and $1.15 for 10 GB of storage. In total, with the configurations used in this project for two hours, the cost of RDS is $1.602.

  • AWS Database Migration Service

    Description:  AWS Database Migration Service helps you migrate databases to AWS easily and securely at a low cost.

    How Pricing Works: You only pay for the compute resources used during the migration process and any additional log storage. Each database migration instance includes storage sufficient for swap space, replication logs, and data cache, for most replications and inbound data transfer is free. For more information, see AWS DMS Pricing.

    Example: In this project, you will provision a t2.small instance with 50GB log storage in US-West-2 (Oregon) region (Single-AZ deployment). With an on-demand pricing model, your charge for the DMS instance will be $0.036 per hour - to keep it running for two hours, you will be charged $0.072.

     

  • AWS Schema Conversion Tool

    Description: The AWS Schema Conversion Tool (SCT) is used to convert the Oracle database schema, including views and stored procedures, to a format compatible with Aurora database. AWS SCT is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Ubuntu Linux version 15.04, and Fedora Linux.

    How Pricing Works: AWS SCT is a free tool, provided as part of the AWS DMS service.

Total Billing Estimates: The total cost of running this project on AWS using the project guide will typically be less than $5 in US-West-2 region, assuming you run this project and decommission the resources within 2 hours. 

The above pricing estimate assumes that data transfer charges in and out of RDS and DMS service are within free tier limits. If you have different configuration and data transfer needs, your cost estimates can vary. Explore the Simple Monthly Calculator to estimate your costs.
