    Our AWS bill is six figures per month

    Jesus Christ. Is this normal? I didn’t realize Segment was that large.

      They have 140 people listed on their team page, so they’re spending at least $14M/year on them (and likely quite a bit more). If their infrastructure cost is 10-20% of that, that seems perfectly normal.

        Depends… Segment has a JS client that runs on customer browsers (like google analytics), then needs to take those events and publish them to downstream analytics servers, not hard to imagine a large bill in those circumstances.

        Man, cost tracking all that seems to be quite complicated.
