Pricing Example

A PostgreSQL database cluster, consisting of 1 primary node and 2 read-replica nodes. Each node has a logical volume (raid1 mirror, or simplyblock virtual volume) of 16TB attached. The database has a requirement of at least 20,000 IOPS.

61%

In this example, simplyblock offers about 61% savings over the standard Amazon EBS volume. The example assumes a 1-year reservation of all storage cluster nodes. With a 3-years reservation agreement, the savings can be increased even further.

The calculation is based on our recommended setup for management nodes (m6i.xlarge, 2 instances for failover) and storage nodes (i3en.large, scaled according to the disk space requirement).
