Yeah don't take that the wrong way. AWS is a huge cost savings if you have
a system and you're trying to deploy it so it will scale. I would never
host a datacenter for a client from my garage I put most of them AWS.
The problem is when you take things down and forget to shut everything off.
My bill was $500 but there was more than just the 1 RDS instance.
I simply spun things up and shut them down, but without terminating them,
thus releasing the resources and of course stopping the billing.
