Things to Know
Here are a couple of interesting things that you should know about AWS and data transfer:

AWS Free Tier – You can use the AWS Free Tier to get started with, and to learn more about, EC2, S3, CloudFront, and many other AWS services. The AWS Getting Started page contains lots of resources to help you with your first project.

Data Transfer from AWS Origins to CloudFront – There is no charge for data transfers from an AWS origin (S3, EC2, Elastic Load Balancing, and so forth) to any CloudFront edge location.

CloudFront Reserved Capacity Pricing – If you routinely use CloudFront to deliver 10 TB or more content per month, you should investigate our Reserved Capacity pricing. You can receive a significant discount by committing to transfer 10 TB or more content from a single region, with additional discounts at higher levels of usage. To learn more or to sign up, simply Contact Us.
