I want to provision 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 pay for only what you use each month. For more information, see AWS pricing.
Each AWS service has its own pricing model. For more information, see Cloud Services pricing.
Estimate your AWS billing
- 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. Choose Create estimate, and then choose your planned resources by service. The AWS Pricing Calculator provides an estimated cost per month. For more information, see What is AWS Pricing Calculator?
- 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.
