Additional Information about AWS Cloud9

This topic provides more information to help you learn about AWS Cloud9.

Pricing

There is no additional charge for AWS Cloud9. If you use an Amazon EC2 instance for your AWS Cloud9 development environment, you pay only for the compute and storage resources (for example, an Amazon EC2 instance, an Amazon EBS volume) that are used to run and store your code. You can also connect your environment to an existing Linux server (for example, an on-premises server) through SSH for no additional charge.

You only pay for what you use, as you use it; there are no minimum fees and no upfront commitments. You are charged the normal AWS rates for any AWS resources (for example, AWS Lambda functions) that you create or use within your environment.

New AWS customers who are eligible for the AWS Free Tier can use AWS Cloud9 for free. If your environment makes use of resources beyond the AWS Free Tier, you are charged the normal AWS rates for those resources.

About Cloud9 Versions

There are two versions of Cloud9: c9.io and AWS Cloud9. This AWS Cloud9 User Guide covers only AWS Cloud9.

c9.io is available only to existing c9.io users, with limited functionality and for only a limited amount of time. For information about the current and future state of c9.io, see Cloud9 now runs on and integrates with AWS on the c9.io website.

c9.io and AWS Cloud9 are not interoperable. You can't use an account or workspace in c9.io with an account or environment in AWS Cloud9.
