Changes to services and prices

August 26, 2019

Summary’s funding source (the Acquisition Services Fund) requires us to review our expenditures and adjust rates to cover the cost of running the service. Starting on October 1, 2019, new interagency agreements (including renewals) will use the following prices. Agreements already in place will not change, and any modification or amendment to an existing agreement in FY20 will retain the original rate until FY21.

Access fees

Plan Previous monthly price New monthly price
Prototyping $1,250.00/month $1,550.00/month
FISMA Low $1,666.67/month $2,070.00/month
FISMA Moderate $7,500.00/month $9,300.00/month

Memory quota cost

Resource Previous monthly price New monthly price
Memory Approximately $105 per gigabyte/month $130 per gigabyte/month

Additional details

  • To simplify billing, we will calculate memory costs monthly instead of daily. We will prorate the billing for modifications in the middle of the month, such as memory quota changes or agreements that start in the middle of the month.

  • RDS, S3, Elasticsearch, and Redis will now run on “high-availability” servers, providing you with additional stability and redundancy.

  • Previously, provided RDS, S3, Elasticsearch, and Redis at no additional cost for a “limited time.” We will continue to provide these services at no additional cost as long as your memory quota remains below the following limits.

    Previous storage cap New storage cap Additional Storage  
    RDS unspecified 1 TB $300 per terabyte/month
    S3 unspecified 5 TB $100 per terabyte/month
    Redis 10 GB 10 GB $100 per gigabyte/month
    ElasticSearch 10 GB 10 GB $100 per gigabyte/month
