Following the example led by David Fifield in publishing the meek transport cloud service costs here is the summary of costs we incurred for running the ooni-pipeline-ng up until now.

Monthly Total      $0.00    $130.20   $89.58    $266.05	  $485.83

* Partial monthly expenses

We are working on migrating the infrastructure over to dedicated hardware and should no longer face such high fees in the future, but perhaps this is still of interest to some of you.

It’s also worth pointing out that in May 2015 the cost would have been much higher, since in testing the deployment of the pipeline we left some machines running for too long by mistake, but luckily Amazon was kind enough to give us $650.00 in credit for unexpected usage.

The projection of costs for June is to be at around $330.00.
