AWS Pricing


The Price Is….

Varied. How it works is more important than how it’s priced at this point, so this will be brief(er).

E2 and RDS have Reserved Capacity, save up to 75% over the equivalent of on-demand capacity.

Instances are;



  • All Up Front (AURI)
  • Partial Up Front (PURI)
  • No Upfront (NURI)

Bigger the upfront payment, bigger the discount.

Minimize risk, manage budget, comply with longer-term commitments.

There are volume-based discounts.
S3 and transfer out from EC2 has tired prizing, most you use, less you pay per gigabite. (Inbound data transfer is always free).

Storage Services Portfolio can help lower your pricing based on how frequently you access data and what it takes to retrieve it.

And there is custom pricing for your projects if you need it.

With AWS, you pay for
  • Compute
    • By the hour with On-Demand Instances.
    • No minimum requirements
  • Data transfer Out (Not In)
    • Aggregated across EC2, S3, RDS, SimpleDB, SQS, SNS, VPC.
    • Charged at outbound data transfer rate.
  • Storage
    • Standard has 11 9s of durability
    • Standard Infrequent Access reduces cost by storing less frequently accessed data (cool data) with slightly less redundancy in place.
    • What’s in your buckets and the size and amount.
    • Volume storage - Amt provisioned in GBs per month
    • Your active Database Instance is fully backed up with no additional charge, if you delete your DBI, then you’re charged per GB per month.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
