    Experience: Calculating the prise of a FMS at Amazon


      Has anyone here experience/opinions about calculating the monthly price of running a FileMaker Server at Amazon on Windows 2014R2?


      When considering this option rather than having your own hardware, this become important.


      It is pretty cryptic, since we usually do not consider storage and traffic when considering our hosting.


      Listening ......

      Best regards

          Once you get up and going Amazon provides an upcoming monthly estimate and breaks it down by service.

          Here is a dev server that I use that is half shut down.  It's a 'mid' 2012R2 server which if on full time is about $52USD per month on a post-pay month by month bill (plus a free bucket that I use for offsite backup).

          It's heaps cheaper to get a yearly "reserved" instance and pre-pay.AWS Estimate.tiff
