Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

I think Amazon EC2 has fair pricing. I actually think the pricing is manageable. I have Free Tiers, as well. You can get on the Free Tier pricing and they just charge you for data storage.

The pricing is fine. It's not too expensive. That said, if you don't have the right model in place, then the cost factor could be one thing that people need to think about because it's based on usage. For example, how long the server is up and running will contribute to the cost. The model needs to be very concrete and work on how we want to use it. Based on that, if these factors are not known and if you don't take care of this, then the cost factor might go up as so it'll only take that one week to take care of any issues. We've never faced such a scenario because we are very clear on how we want to use it every time.

The costs are quite high. For our usage, the cost is approximately $20,000 to $23,000 per month.

We're charged depending on the run time, but there are other costs as well, including costs for transactions and storage.
