Cost - Simple File Manager for Amazon EFS


You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running the Simple File Manager for Amazon EFS solution, which can vary based on the following factors:

  • Number of Amazon API Gateway requests per month.

  • Number of AWS Lambda invocations per month.

  • Volume of web traffic delivered from Amazon CloudFront per month. (The solution uses CloudFront to deliver the web UI with ultra-low latency performance and high availability to your end users.)

  • Number of active users per month authenticated with Amazon Cognito.

As of October 2022, the cost for running this solution with the default settings in the US East (N. Virginia) Region is approximately $0.78/month. This solution is based entirely on serverless AWS services. Therefore, when the solution is not in use, you only pay for data storage.

We recommend creating a budget through AWS Cost Explorer to help manage costs.
