Introduction to AWS S3 Pricing and How to Optimize Expenditure

Amazon Simple Storage Service (referred to as AWS S3) is AWS’s cloud-based file storage platform. Amazon S3 is one of Amazon’s most widely used services, but it’s also one of the easiest to overspend on. If you’re not familiar with AWS S3’s pricing model or taking advantage of lifecycle policies, you’re likely paying more for storage than you need.

In this AWS S3 Pricing and Cost Optimization Guide, you’ll learn the following:

  • Learn about AWS S3’s pricing and cost factors.
  • Use AWS S3’s storage class analysis to figure out how much you could save by optimizing your storage classes.
  • Set up a lifecycle policy that automatically transitions files to the best storage class.
  • Finally, a few general tips for AWS S3 pricing and cost optimization.

12 Strategies to Reduce Amazon S3 Costs

Amazon Simple Storage Service or Amazon S3 is a service designed to house storage for the internet. In this article, we’ll talk through all the strategies you can use to reduce Amazon S3 costs.

First, let’s review the factors that affect Amazon S3 monthly costs. You will pay for:

  • The size of data stored each month (GB).
  • The number of access operations completed (e.g. PUT, COPY, POST, LIST, GET, SELECT, or other request types).
  • The number of transitions between different classes.
  • Data retrieval size and amount of requests.
  • Data transfer fees (bandwidth out from Amazon S3)

One of the most important cost factors is the storage class. Make sure you understand the different classes available and their use cases. Let’s quickly review and compare them.

Amazon S3 offers 6 different storage classes.

  • S3 Standard
  • S3 Intelligent-Tiering
  • S3 Standard-IA
  • S3 One Zone-IA
  • S3 Glacier
  • S3 Glacier Deep Archive

Keep in mind that every S3 object can be assigned a specific storage

class. Thus a bucket might have objects with different classes simultaneously.

S3 Standard class is typically used for frequently accessed data. Although the cost per Gb is high, you don’t pay for the number of requests. And therefore this storage class is best suited for objects read or written several times each month.

The third class in the table is S3 Standard-IA. It has a lower Storage Price. But the access cost is higher. According to AWS, it should be used for long-lived but infrequently accessed data that needs instant access.

AWS Cost Allocation Tags and Cost Reduction

Bob had just arrived in the office for his first day of work as the newly hired chief technical officer when he was called into a conference room by the president, Martha, who immediately introduced him to the head of accounting, Amanda. They exchanged pleasantries, and then Martha got right down to business:

“Bob, we have several teams here developing software applications on Amazon and our bill is very high. We think it’s unnecessarily high, and we’d like you to look into it and bring it under control.”

Martha placed a screenshot of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) billing report on the table and pointed to it.

“This is a problem for us: We don’t know what we’re spending this money on, and we need to see more detail.”

Amanda chimed in, “Bob, look, we have financial dimensions that we use for reporting purposes, and I can provide you with some guidance regarding some information we’d really like to see such that the reports that are ultimately produced mirror these dimensions — if you can do this, it would really help us internally.”

“Bob, we can’t stress how important this is right now. These projects are becoming very expensive for our business,” Martha reiterated.

“How many projects do we have?” Bob inquired.

“We have four projects in total: two in the aviation division and two in the energy division. If it matters, the aviation division has 75 developers and the energy division has 25 developers,” the CEO responded.

Bob understood the problem and responded, “I’ll see what I can do and have some ideas. I might not be able to give you retrospective insight, but going forward, we should be able to get a better idea of what’s going on and start to bring the cost down.”

The meeting ended with Bob heading to find his desk. Cost allocation tags should help us, he thought to himself as he looked for someone who might know where his office is.
