I want to provision some AWS resources. How can I estimate how much my AWS resources will cost?
Understand the principles of AWS cloud pricing
Most AWS services offer pay-as-you-go pricing, so you only pay for what you use each month.
Each AWS service has its own pricing model. See Cloud Services Pricing.
Estimate your AWS billing
- To estimate the costs of migrating on-premises infrastructure to AWS, use the AWS Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator.
- If you plan to migrate significant infrastructure to AWS, use the AWS Sales & Business Development contact form, and then choose I need to speak to someone in sales.
- To estimate a bill, use the AWS Pricing Calculator. Enter your planned resources by service, and the AWS Pricing Calculator provides an estimated cost per month.
- To forecast your costs, use the AWS Cost Explorer. Use cost allocation tags to divide your resources into groups, and then estimate the costs for each group.
Note: AWS Support can't estimate your costs for migrating infrastructure to AWS.
