With AWS you can replace your upfront capital expense with low variable cost and pay only for the resources you consume. AWS’s economies of scale and efficiency improvements allow AWS to continually lower prices, while multiple pricing models allow you to optimize your costs for both variable and stable workloads.
AWS is more cost-effective than on-premises
IDC discovered that the five-year total cost of ownership (TCO) of developing, deploying, and managing critical applications in AWS delivered a 72% savings when compared with deploying the same resources on-premises or in a hosted environment. The report also found a 626% ROI over five years.
So AWS is more cost-effective than on-premises environments in both the short and long term. Find out how much you can save over on-premises or in a co-location facility by using the AWS TCO Calculator to run a cost comparison
Pay as you go, only for what you use
AWS offers a simple, consistent, and transparent pay as you go pricing model, charging you only for the resources you actually consume. Moreover, with AWS there are no upfront fees, no minimum commitment, and no long-term contracts required.
Optimize your spend with multiple pricing models
Amazon EC2 provides you several flexible pricing options that can help you significantly reduce your overall IT costs, including On-Demand, Spot, and Reserved Instances. Whether your workload is variable or stable, Reserved Instances can save you up to 75% over On-Demand Instances.
Save more as you use more
For storage and data transfer, AWS offers a tiered pricing model. The more storage and data transfer you use, the less you pay per gigabyte. In addition, volume discounts and custom pricing are available to customers for high volume projects with unique requirements.
Achieve cost-effective high-availability
The AWS platform enables you to easily build fault-tolerant applications without any up-front capital investment. You can leverage AWS’s unique capabilities like Availability Zones (AZs) to get easy access to distributed data centers at no extra cost and Amazon S3 to get a highly durable storage infrastructure.
