Cloud Solutions - Rates

In the first year of service, AWS @ Penn will provide AWS cloud services at the on-demand rates Amazon Web Services advertises for each of their services. In future years, we hope to be able to provide this service at a discounted rate.

One goal of the AWS @ Penn offering is to simplify the effort of optimizing costs through negotiated group-purchasing discounts and by pre-purchasing reserved capacity on behalf of its clients for the AWS services that support it. The savings achieved will then cover the costs of providing enterprise-level support as well as being passed along to AWS @ Penn customers in the form of discounts applied to monthly usage costs.

Some commonly used services within AWS include their Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Relational Database Service (RDS), and Simple Storage Service (S3). You may want to visit the links below for more information on the pricing of each of these.

Cloud Solutions can also provide assistance with estimating AWS costs. Requests for assistance with cost estimation should be made through ISC Client Care.

ISC rate increases are generally aligned with University increases.
