Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) provides a managed OpenShift experience integrated with AWS. The total cost of ROSA consists of two components: ROSA service fees and AWS infrastructure fees.
ROSA service fees accrue on demand, at an hourly rate of $0.171 per 4 vCPU used by worker nodes, plus a $0.03 per hour cluster fee.* Service fees aren't charged for the control plane or required infrastructure nodes. 1-year and 3-year** ROSA service contracts offer savings between 33% and 55% off the on-demand rate for worker nodes. ROSA service fees are uniform across all supported AWS Regions.
|ROSA Worker Node Service Fees Yearly Cost||On-demand||With 1-year contract||With 3-year contract**|
|Worker Node Fee Per 4 vCPU/Year||$1500||$1000||$667|
AWS infrastructure fees include fees for the underlying worker nodes, infrastructure nodes, control plane nodes, storage, and network. The minimal Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) footprint for a multi-Availability Zone (AZ) ROSA deployment consists of 3 worker nodes, 3 infrastructure nodes, and 3 control plane nodes. For a deployment to a single-AZ, the minimal footprint shrinks to 2 worker nodes, 2 infrastructure nodes, and 3 control plane nodes. AWS infrastructure fees vary by Region. Use the AWS Pricing Calculator to estimate the cost of planned infrastructure in your preferred Region.
* For a limited time, there will be no hourly cluster fee.
** 3-year contracts are not yet available through the AWS ROSA console but can be obtained by contacting your AWS representative.
*** Does not include the cost of AWS services other than Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS. Please see Provisioned AWS Infrastructure for more details about what is provisioned.
