Cost - IoT Device Simulator


You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this solution. As of this revision, the estimated cost for running the IoT Device Simulator solution using the 100 automotive demo device types in a single simulation, sending a message every two seconds in the US East (N. Virginia) Region is $3.05 per month for a simulation running six hours per day, $6.11 per month for a simulation running 12 hours per day, and $12.22 per month for a simulation running 24 hours per day. This includes estimated charges for Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon IoT Core. These costs are for the resources shown in the Sample cost table.
