Hi,

Does the book cover the cost of hosting a small application on AWS?

I tried it for a small web application using the smallest MySQL tier . The cost was going to be way higher that just porting it to a hosting service.
I had issues with the lack of clarity in Amazon's pricing structure.

It seems they are only targeting large corporate users rather than individual developers .
Perhaps I'm missing something.

thanks,
Paul

Thanks for your question, Paul.

Our book discusses the pricing model for all AWS services included in the book and in general. You are able to calculate the costs of a small application after reading through our book.

A good starting point is the AWS cost calculator: http://calculator.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html
