04:04
Five gigabytes of Amazon s three standard storage,

The free tier applies to certain participating. AWS service is up to a specific
09:18
maximum amount of usage each month that we mentioned a little bit earlier.
09:24

09:31
Your credit card, maybe build for related service is that are not covered under the free tier.
09:37
An example would be if you're running an Amazon, easy to
09:41
em one dot small instance
09:43
rather than a t. One micro instance,
09:46
Can you use the free tier in any region?

Ability. Alarm allows you to monitor your estimated AWS charges using Amazon cloudwatch.
10:16
Actually, a building alarm is one of the first activities that we will do after we create our AWS free tier account.

When you enable the monitoring of estimated charges for your AWS count,
10:28
the estimated charges are calculated and sent several times daily to cloudwatch
10:33
as metric data.
10:35
This alert is sent
10:37
via the Amazon Simple Notification service.
10:41
The alarm triggers when your account billing exceeds the threshold that you specify
10:46
it triggers on Lee when actual building exceeds that threshold
10:50
enable the monitoring of estimated charges.
10:54
The first thing we'll do
10:56
is open the building and Cost Management Council
