I'm using AWS, and my usage is well within the free tier, however I recently got an unexpected bill. The only item costing me money was as follows:
Amazon RDS for MySQL Community Edition $0.035 per RDS Micro Instance hour (or partial hour) 724 Hr $25.34
The free usage tier specifies the following:
Amazon RDS for MySQL and Oracle (BYOL) - Free Trial (Per Month):
750 hours of Amazon RDS Small Single-AZ Instance usage – enough hours to run continuously each month
My DB instance type is listed as
db.t1.micro. Does this mean I need to upgrade to a
db.m1.small for it to be free?
