6 quick ways to cut cost on your Lambdas

  • You get one million invocations for free and 3.2M seconds of compute time, every month.
  • You only pay for the invocations you use on top of those.
  • For every individual invocation, you pay $0.0000002 but it’s important to note that duration plays an important factor too as you’ll have to pay about $0.0000166667 for every Gb/s after that.
