Comparing AWS Fargate cost to EC2
Fargate cost for
us-east-1 (from here):
per vCPU per hour $0.04048 per GB per hour $0.004445
EC2 costs for
us-east-1 (from here).
I’ve only included x86, not ARM, because I can run x86 on Fargate so presumably that’s
what it’s quoting. Also, x86 is typically more expensive than ARM so it’s in Fargate’s
# c6a 2 vCPU/ 4GiB $0.0765 # c6i 2 vCPU/ 4GiB $0.085
Now, if we use the Fargate cost to calculate 2 vCPU and 4GiB memory, so we can compare:
2 * $0.04048 + 4 * $0.004445 = 0.09874
So that’s 1.29x and 1.16x more expensive, respectively. That’s not too bad seeing as last time I did this check it was ~5x more expensive.
