Amazon Timestream is a fast, scalable, fully managed time series database service that collects, stores, and queries time-series data for IoT and operational applications. With Amazon Timestream, you pay only for what you use. You are billed separately for writes, data stored, and data scanned by queries. Timestream automatically scales your writes, storage, and query capacity based on usage. You can set the data retention policy for each table and choose to store data in an in-memory store, SSD store, or magnetic store.

Pricing at a glance
Writes & Query

Writes

Timestream charges per 1M writes to a table.

Query

Timestream charges per TB of data scanned by each query.

Storage

Memory Store

Timestream charges per GB of memory store space that your tables consume.

SSD Store

Timestream charges per GB of SSD store space that your tables consume.

Pricing details

Writes

Timestream charges based on the number of writes. Each write is counted in units of 1KB.

Region: US East (Ohio)

Metric Price
1 million writes of 1KB size $0.50

Memory Store

Data in the memory store can be queried with in-memory latencies. Memory store capacity consumed by your tables is billed for every GB-hour used.

Region: US East (Ohio)

Metric Price
Price per GB stored per hour $0.036

SSD Store

Data in the SSD store can be queried with SSD latencies. SSD store capacity consumed by your tables is billed for every GB-hour used.

Region: US East (Ohio)

Metric Price
Price per GB stored per hour $0.0004167 ($0.01 per GB-day)

Magnetic Store

Data in the magnetic store can be queried with magnetic disk latencies. Magnetic store capacity consumed by your tables is billed for every GB-hour used.

Region: US East (Ohio)

Metric Price
Price per GB stored per hour $0.0000411 (~$0.03 per GB-month)

Query

You are charged on the amount of time-series data scanned by each query in terabytes (TB).

Region: US East (Ohio)

Metric Price
1 TB of data scanned $10

Data Transfer

Data transfer "in" and "out" refer to transfer into and out of Timestream. There is no additional charge for data transferred between Timestream and other AWS services within the same AWS Region (in other words, $0.00 per GB). Data transferred across AWS Regions, such as between Timestream in the US East (N. Virginia) Region and Amazon EC2 in the EU (Ireland) Region is charged on both sides of the transfer.

Region: US East (Ohio)

Data Transferred Price
Data Transfer IN  
All data transfer in $0.00 per GB
Data Transfer OUT  
Up to 1 GB / Month $0.00 per GB
Next 9.999 TB / Month $0.09 per GB
Next 40 TB / Month $0.085 per GB
Next 100 TB / Month $0.07 per GB
Greater than 150 TB / Month $0.05 per GB

Pricing example

Consider a Timestream database with a table that stores monitoring data from 10 devices, each generating 1GB of data per day. The table data retention policy is 3 hours for Memory Store, 3 days for SSD Store, and 12 months for Magnetic Store. A dashboard queries the table 10 times per day, scanning 10GB per query. One hundred ad-hoc queries are run on the table per month, scanning 10GB per query. Monthly costs are computed as shown below:

  • Writes would cost: $150. This is computed as (10 * 1GB/day * 30 days) * $0.5/GB = $150
  • Memory store would cost: $32.4. This is computed as (10 * 1GB * 3 hours) * $0.036 GB-hour * 30 days = $32.4
  • SSD store would cost: $9. This is computed as (10 * 1GB * 3 days) * $0.01 GB-day * 30 days = $9
  • Magnetic store would cost: $108. This is computed as (10 * 1GB * 30 days * 12 months) * $0.03 GB-month = $108
  • Query would cost: $40. This is computed as (10 queries/day * 30 days + 100 queries per month) * 10 GB * $10/1,000 = $40

Your total monthly bill for Timestream for this example would be $339.4. This is computed as $150 for Writes + $32.4 for Memory Store + $9 for SSD Store + $108 for Magnetic Store, and $40 for Query. The data transfer cost in this case is minimal.
