Note that the cost for running AWS Perspective in the AWS Cloud depends on the deployment configuration you choose.

AWS services listed in the example cost tables below are billed on a monthly basis.

Example cost tables

Option 1: Single instance deployment (default)

When deploying this solution using an AWS CloudFormation template, modifying the OpensearchMultiAz parameter to No deploys a single instance for the Amazon OpenSearch Service domain, and modifying the CreateNeptuneReplica parameter to No deploys a single instance for the Amazon Neptune data store. The single instance deployment option incurs a lower cost, but it reduces the availability of AWS Perspective in the event of an Availability Zone failure.

Total: $0.586* $425.19*

Option 2: Multiple instances deployment

When deploying this solution using an AWS CloudFormation template, modifying the OpensearchMultiAz parameter to Yes deploys two instances in two Availability Zones for the Amazon OpenSearch Service domain, and modifying the CreateNeptuneReplica parameter to Yes deploys two instances in two Availability Zones for the Amazon Neptune data store. The multiple instances deployment option will cost more to run, but it increases the availability of AWS Perspective in the event of an Availability Zone failure.
