SAS UE on AWS - Friendly usage considerations

Although SAS UE is free for the first year, costs are incurred the year after. 

It looks like it costs $15/month US to keep the instance running full time. 

 

If you delete your install, make sure to delete any instances/storage space as well otherwise you'll still end up paying. Two lessons learned: 

 

1. Check status of Instances when deleting apps

2. Check bills when they come in so you don't find out you've been paying $15/month, several months, for something you don't use Cat Frustrated

Interesting! I've been using it for 3 years now and have never been charged anything. However, I didn't signup with AWS but, rather, simply downloaded everything directly from SAS.

SAS UE using VirtualBox or VMWare is fully free. 

 

When you set it up on AWS it creates an instance of a computer and a storage space that allow the Virtual app to run in the cloud. 

I deleted the machine instance not the storage space. It's possible it's from something else but I doubt it.
