AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) is one of the most popular AWS services offered under the umbrella of storage. For most enterprises, AWS S3 spend is one of the top five biggest spends among all AWS offerings. There are three primary costs associated with S3: The storage cost charged per GB per month or per hour, API cost for operation of files where write requests are ten fold expensive, and data transfer cost outside of AWS region.

Despite expenses, however, S3 cannot be ignored. It offers a durability of 99.999999999% compared to other object storage. Plus, it has a simple web interface to store and retrieve any amount of data.

If you’re a operations manager or a cloud engineer, you probably already know that data read/write or data moved in/out are also considered as moving billable parts of S3 storage. So, AWS S3 billing has something more in it beyond just the storage cost. Hence, a detailed analysis of all these can help you keep AWS S3 bill shock to a minimum.
