7 Free AWS Resources That You Need to Know

Share this post AWS offers many products that you can use for free with the AWS Free Tier.

What is the AWS Free Tier?
The AWS Free Tier allows you to explore and test AWS services for free up to a specified limit.
The Free Tier includes three types of offers: a 12-month Free Tier and an Always Free offer. There are also short-term trials.
Services with a 12-month free Tier allow you to use the product up to a specified limit for one year starting from the date that the account was created.
Services with an “Always Free” offer allow you to use the product free of charge for as long as your AWS account is active.
Services that offer a short-term trial can be used for free for a specific period of time, or up to a limited time, depending on the service chosen.
If your application usage exceeds the free tier limits you will be charged standard, pay as-you-go rates.
Participating services in all regions are eligible for the Amazon AWS Free Tier. The AWS Free Tier calculates your free usage each month across all regions. It is applied to your bill automatically. Free usage does not accumulate.
What are the requirements to be eligible for the AWS Free Tier
All customers can access the AWS Free Tier. Only one account can receive the AWS Free Tier offer if you are connected to an Organization (under AWS Organizations).
The usage of AWS Services by an Organization under any offer is summed across all accounts. If you are not eligible for the free Tier or exceed the limits for a service, you will be charged standard rates.
