Cost of hosting Ray Cloud Browser during 1 month in AWS EC2

I got this question on Twitter: what has your bill totaled since you've started hosting ray viewer?

I guess ray viewer is just another name for Ray Cloud Browser ;-P.

For one month, I expect the costs to be at least 2.1915 $ (365.25/12*24*0.003) for my t1.micro spot instance and 6.4000 $ (64 * 0.10) for my 64 GiB Amazon EBS Standard volume. I/O requests are hard to predict, and I did run some I/O intensive workloads that were unrelated to Ray Cloud Browser during this period on my t1.micro instance. My resources are located in the availability zone us-east-1a.



Here the pricing history for t1.micro spot instances in the us-east-1a availability zone.


Figure 1: Pricing history for t1.micro spot instances in the us-east-1a availability zone. Data are from Amazon Web Services API. The vertical axis is a by-the-hour price.


Using the Cost Allocation Feature, I generated (with a home-baked Ruby script) a pivot table for my operation costs in the cloud during the month of February 2013.
