AWS CodeBuild cost saving tips Optimize your AWS CodeBuild costs with these tips


Cache Dependencies

Optimize build durations by caching dependencies and build artifacts. This approach reduces the time CodeBuild needs to avail compute resources and, consequently, costs.


Right-Size Compute

Choose a smaller compute type for your builds like BUILD_GENERAL1_SMALL. It's cheaper than larger types provided it meets your build performance needs.


Manage S3 Artifacts

Only store needed build artifacts in Amazon S3 and regularly delete unused ones. Keeping unnecessary large build outputs in S3 for long-term can escalate storage 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.

About AWS CodeBuild Service information & pricing

About AWS CodeBuild

AWS CodeBuild is a managed continuous integration service that compiles, tests, and packages software. It eliminates the need for users to manage their own build servers; users simply input their source code location and selected build settings. CodeBuild automatically scales capacity to avoid queuing, only charging for the actual build time. It can also handle code hosted on GitHub.

AWS CodeBuild pricing

AWS CodeBuild adopts a pay-as-you-go method, with no initial or minimum costs. Charges are based on resource consumption and build execution time, which can vary with compute type selection. Build time for On-Demand EC2 is measured in minutes while On-Demand Lambda is in seconds. Different compute types offer varied memory and CPU, impacting the price. Pricing differs for Linux and Windows per EC2 build minute and Lambda build second.
