Amazon Web Services (AWS), Pricing, Console Basics, Cost Explorer, Budgets, & Training Opportunities
Is there training for AWS? How do I determine how much using the service it will cost?
AWS accounts through the university offer an educational discount of 11% off the retail prices listed in the AWS Pricing Calculator. The university is also not charge for network traffic out to the Internet (also knows as an egress waiver) as long as this cost does not exceed 15% of our overall bill.
A video of AWS Technical Account Manager (TAM) Chris Bell provides an overview of AWS console basics, cost explorer and budgets https://mediaspace.illinois.edu/media/t/1_y0tf3qmn.
Each AWS account also offers Enterprise Support from AWS.
You can also schedule a meeting with our AWS team using AWS Office Hours.
The AWS Pricing Calculator, https://calculator.aws/, provides a way to estimate the cost of services on AWS.
