AWS App Mesh cost saving tips Optimize your AWS App Mesh costs with these tips


Use Multi-Availability Zones

Deploying services across multiple availability zones in the same region allows App Mesh to distribute traffic and ensures redundancy, ultimately saving costs compared to multiple region deployment.


Right-Size Resources

Regularly monitor resource usage with CloudWatch and right-size EC2 instances or Fargate tasks to match demand. This prevents the unnecessary cost of oversized resources.


Remove Unused Services

Delete unused App Mesh configurations and remove associated tasks/instances. As billing is based on resource consumption, removing unused resources helps to lower costs.

About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.

AWS App Mesh pricing

AWS App Mesh doesn't charge users but relies on user payments for the AWS resources, like EC2 instances or Fargate CPU/memories, consumed via lightweight proxy used alongside containers. Costs for related products such as Amazon ECS with Fargate/EC2 and Amazon EKS depend on the resources consumed from pulling your container images until Amazon ECS Task termination. Pricing is per second with a minimum charge of a minute; EC2 and EKS have no minimum fees or upfront commitments.
