Join Lynn Langit for an in-depth discussion in this video About using cloud services, part of Amazon Web Services: Controlling Cost.
- [Instructor] As we get started learning about Cloud service class control, I want to just have special attention called out to the fact that Cloud services cost money. So even though some services do have a free tier, and you can try them without cost, most of the services are going to have a per-time-used or a service-level-used cost. So you will be working with various services throughout this course. If you're spinning up services and following along with me, please be sure to only use those services at the cost levels that are going to be appropriate for your particular use case.
And when you're done studying and learning, remember to turn off and/or delete those services. In particular, the ones that incur a lot of costs that I see people get in trouble with are EC2 instances and databases, such as RDS. It's very, very important. You don't want to get any surprise bills. And this course is actually on AWS Cloud cost control, so it's especially important to do that in this particular course.
