When you use Amazon RDS on Outposts, as with Amazon RDS, you pay only for what you use. There is no minimum fee. You can pay for Amazon RDS using On-Demand Instances. Amazon RDS on Outposts provides a selection of instance types optimized to fit different relational database use cases.

On-Demand DB Instances

On-Demand DB Instances let you pay for compute capacity by each hour your DB instance runs, with no long-term commitments. This frees you from the costs and complexities of planning, purchasing, and maintaining hardware and transforms what are commonly large fixed costs into much smaller variable costs.

RDS on Outposts currently supports Single-AZ deployments. Pricing is per DB instance-hour consumed, from the time a DB instance is launched until it is stopped or deleted. Partial DB instance-hours are billed in one-hour increments following a billable status change such as creating, starting, or modifying the DB instance class. For example, when you run a DB instance for 30 minutes and then terminate the instance, you are billed for one DB instance-hour.
