First month data using S3 offloading for WPMU

April was our first month of using the themes-s3 plugin for offloading WordPress-Mu theme files to Amazon-S3. I have received the monthly bill from Amazon just a few days ago and thought I would share the numbers. So here you go ( the numbers in bold are the real costs):

$0.15 per GB-Month of storage used 0.006 GB-Mo $0.01
$0.10 per GB – all data transfer in 0.011 GB $0.01
$0.18 per GB – first 10 TB / month data transfer out 2.784 GB $0.50
$0.01 per 1,000 PUT or LIST requests 3810 Requests $0.04
$0.01 per 10,000 GET and all other requests 2394466 Requests $2.39

The total monthly cost is $2.95 and most of the charge is for GET requests – 2,394,466 of them. As you can se, storage and data are very cheap and according to Amazon’s announcement, this month they will be even cheaper.

Overall performance has improved but offloading is not the only reason. We did a few more thing with our system but “saving” 2,394,466 requests and file servings must have helped.
