We are still new with Commvault and AWS and more specifically fitting into a REAL budget. Recently there was a report of some drastic increase in charges for a small vpc environment. We are at 11.28.36 and are backing up a total of 18 EC2s with 1 Full / week and 1 Incremental / day (except on the Full day). The Storage Policy for retention is set to 30 days and 0 cycles. We also note that AWS recently started encrypting S3 buckets for free. We also have encryption AES 256 set,
Also so note that the S3 was originally setup with versioning. We have since (12/2022) suspended the versioning and have plans to use a new S3 and seal off the DDB.
We have never done a restore in this list environment.
The question is how or if Commvault uses the GET, PUT, COPY, POST & LIST functions? The accounting people have reported the following:
Feb – 2023 – Total S3 Bill was ~$174
Amazon Simple Storage Service USW2-Requests-Tier1 $17.47
$0.005 per 1,000 PUT, COPY, POST, or LIST requests 3,494,075.000 Requests$17.47
Amazon Simple Storage Service USW2-Requests-Tier2 $67.20
$0.004 per 10,000 GET and all other requests 168,000,129.000 Requests$67.20
****** And 2 months Later:
April- 2023 –S3 Bill is ~$8580
Amazon Simple Storage Service USW2-Requests-Tier1 $6,652.05
$0.005 per 1,000 PUT, COPY, POST, or LIST requests 1,330,409,529.000 Requests $6,652.05
Amazon Simple Storage Service USW2-Requests-Tier2 $1,887.04
$0.004 per 10,000 GET and all other requests 4,717,597,608.000 Requests $1,887.04
As you can see, a huge increase in the GET, PUT, COPY, POST, or LIST.
I appreciate any thoughts with this.
