Step 6. Review Estimated Cost

At the Cost Estimation step of the wizard, review the estimated monthly cost of using AWS services and resources to protect EC2 instances. The estimated cost is available if you specified the backup schedule at the Schedule step of the wizard.

To calculate the estimated cost, Veeam Backup for AWS uses capabilities of the Amazon Web Services Simple Monthly Calculator.

The estimate cost includes:

  • Snapshots — cost of creating and maintaining cloud-native snapshots of an EC2 instance.

The calculation is based on the properties of the protected EC2 instance — instance type and number of attached EBS volumes, and backup policy settings — snapshot creation schedule and number of restore points that must be retained in the snapshot chain.

  • Replicas — cost of creating snapshot replicas and maintaining them in the target AWS region.

The calculation is based on backup policy settings — snapshot replica creation schedule and number of restore points that must be retained in the snapshot replica chain.

  • Backup — cost of creating and maintaining image-level backups of an EC2 instance.

The calculation is based on the properties of the protected EC2 instance — instance type and number of attached EBS volumes, and backup policy settings — backup creation schedule and number of restore points that must be retained in the backup chain.

  • Traffic — cost of transferring EC2 instance data between AWS regions during data protection operations (for example, if protected EC2 instances and Amazon S3 bucket storing backed-up data reside in different regions).
  • Transaction — cost of making API requests to Amazon S3 during data protection operations.

For more information on cost estimation, see this Veeam KB article.
