The actual usage charge of EBS

[ Edited ]

Hi All,

 

I want to know about actual usage charge of EBS.

 

<example 1>
Aggr size: 500GB(1 x 500GB EBS)
Vol size: 100BG
Thin Provisioning: disable
Actual usage: 50GB
The charge of EBS: $0.12/GB/month

Total charge: 100GB x $0.12/GB = $12/month

 

<example 2>
Aggr size: 500GB(1 x 500GB EBS)
Vol size: 100BG
Thin Provisioning: enable
Actual usage: 50GB
The charge of EBS: $0.12/GB/month

Total charge: 50GB x $0.12/GB = $6/month


Do I understand correctly?

 

 

Best regards

Kaneko,

 

I think you did miss a point here.

 

You don't pay per the usage of NetApp capacity, but per EBS capacity on AWS.

So, in both your cases you have 1 500GB SSD disk and you'd pay how much it costs to have it available for a month.

 

Hope that answers your question.

 

Thanks,

Yaron

Yaron-san,


Thank you for your reply!

 

I understood that the actual charge is the following.
Total charge: 500GB x $0.12/GB = $60/month

 

Best regards

Hello Kaneko-san,

 

Yes, that is correct.  In the AWS Asia Pacitic (Tokyo) region, the price per GB of EBS GP2 storage is $0.12 per GB per month.

 

Best,

 

Kevin.
