It’s September now, so good time to check what was the real cost to run our Snowplow/AWS website visitors tracking set-up.

When we set-up our AWS environment, we created a service tag for billing to track all costs related with our solution: S3, Cloudfront, Lambda, Athena. Here is what we got for this tag for August:

Cost of Snowplow tracking

As you see we ended up with $0.83 costs involved in tracking, indeed less than one dollar.

To be totally fair time period was a bit less than month, the data started to be properly collected Aug 9th, but still the claim of $1/month infrastructure cost was met if not literally, but close by. Tracked website generated 10077 events over that period of time.
