Cost - Performance Dashboard on AWS


You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this solution. As of September 2022, the estimated cost for running this solution for 5,000 users viewing dashboards, and four editors working eight hours per day creating dashboards, with default settings in the US East (N. Virginia) Region, is approximately $38.00 per month. The cost estimate assumes the users spend daily sessions of 10 minutes viewing the dashboards, clicking twice a minute, and each dashboard having 10 charts and using 500 KB datasets. This user load results in approximately three million requests a month against the system. If you have a larger number of users viewing the dashboards, or if your dashboards have more charts or use larger datasets, your cost will be higher.
