Cost - Edit in the Cloud on AWS


You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this solution. The total cost will depend on your activity. This depends on how long you keep your EC2 running, how much data you transfer into AWS, and other service costs that are associated with this solution. For example, this solution does not deploy an Amazon S3 bucket; however, it allows you to configure your own S3 bucket for media file storage.

The default EC2 this solution deploys is a g4dn.4xlarge EC2 instance for running Windows. As of November 2022, the cost of running this solution with the default settings in the US East (N. Virginia) Region is $1,323.04 per month. This includes estimated charges for Amazon FSx for Windows File Server, and AWS Directory Service. To save money, consider turning off your Windows EC2 instance when not in use. Prices are subject to change.
