As you may know, Vapor is a serverless deployment platform for Laravel that strives to make the deployment and scaling of your Laravel project easier than ever. Behind the scenes, Vapor provisions your Laravel infrastructure on AWS and AWS costs are not included as part of your Vapor subscription. In this post, we'll discuss a brand new Vapor feature that allows you to stay informed about your AWS costs and avoid unexpected charges.
Here, you can define your monthly AWS budget in USD and configure multiple alarms to notify the team owner via email if there is a spike in costs.
Behind the scenes, Vapor uses the AWS Budgets service, which checks your bill three times a day - typically every 8–12 hours.
