With Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, you pay for the volume of data you ingest into the service. There are no set up fees or upfront commitments. You are billed for the volume of data ingested into Kinesis Data Firehose, and if applicable, for data format conversion to Apache Parquet or ORC. Usage charges associated with Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service are billed separately.

For delivery stream with a destination that resides in an Amazon VPC, you will be billed for every hour that your delivery stream is active in each AZ. Each partial hour is billed as a full hour. Data processing charges apply for each Gigabyte processed for the destination inside your Amazon VPC, irrespective of the state of your destination.

Data Ingested, format conversion, and VPC delivery

Pricing is based on the volume of data ingested into Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, which is calculated as the number of data records you send to the service, times the size of each record rounded up to the nearest 5KB. For example, if your data records are 42KB each, Kinesis Data Firehose will count each record as 45KB of data ingested. If you configure your delivery stream to convert the incoming data into Apache Parquet or Apache ORC format before the data is delivered to destinations, format conversion charges apply based on the volume of the incoming data. If you configure your delivery stream to deliver to a destination that resides in a VPC, you will be charged based on the volume of data processed via the VPC and for the number of hours that you delivery stream is active in each AZ.
