Objectives

  • Describe the different pricing models for AWS resources
  • Identify the various account structures used for AWS billing and pricing
  • Understand where to find and how to use AWS cost management tools

Prerequisites

This lesson is designed for anyone who is new to cloud computing, so no prior experience with AWS is necessary.
