Stedi Buckets data transfer and storage usage is calculated in binary units, where 1 GB = 1,024 MB (230bytes). This unit of measurement is also known as a gibibyte (GiB), defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Similarly, 1 MB = 1,024 KB (220 bytes), and 1 KB = 1,024 bytes (210 bytes) .

Examples

The following examples assume a 31-day month.

Example 1

A trading partner uses Stedi Buckets to store batched X12 EDI documents. Each EDI document contains several transactions, resulting in an average file size of 150 KB. A new batch is generated every 30 minutes, every day, resulting in 1,488 EDI document uploads (PUT requests) every month. Each document is retrieved once for processing by a Stedi Function resulting in 1,488 GET requests every month. An average of 1 GB worth of EDI documents are stored in the Stedi Bucket during the month.

First 1,000 PUT requests = Free
Next 488 PUT requests = 488 * $0.0005 per request = $0.24

First 1,000 GET requests = Free
Next 488 GET requests = 488 * $0.00005 per request = $0.02

Data stored = 1 GB = 1,024 MB
First 10 MB storage = Free 
Next 1,014 MB storage = (1,014 MB / 1,024) * $0.19 per GB-month = $0.19

Total data transit = (1,488 PUT + 1,488 GET requests) * 150 KB = 446,400 KB = 435.9 MB 
Fee for first 10 MB data transferred = Free
Fee for next 425.9 MB data transferred = (425.9 MB / 1,024) * $0.00512 per GB = $0.00

$0.24 + $0.00 + $0.19 + $0.05 = $0.48 total 

Example 2

A customer uses Stedi Buckets to store X12 EDI 846 Inventory Inquiry/Advice in order to exchange inventory data with trading partners. The customer receives 10 MB EDI 846s once every hour, totaling 720 files (PUT requests) over the course of a month. Each file is read by a third-party application (GET request) and the data is transferred over the Internet. An average of 200 MB worth of documents are stored in the Stedi Bucket during the month.

720 PUT requests = Free

720 GET requests = Free

Data stored = 200 MB
First 10 MB storage = Free 
Next 190 MB storage = (190 MB / 1,024) * $0.19 per GB-month = $0.04

Total data transit = (720 PUT + 720 GET requests) * 10 MB = 14,400 MB
Fee for first 10 MB transit = Free
Fee for next 14,390 MB transit = (14,390 MB / 1,024) * $0.00512 per GB = $0.07

Total data transferred OUT to the Internet = 720 GET requests * 10 MB = 7,200 MB
Fee for first 10 MB transferred OUT to the Internet = Free
Fee for next 7,190 MB transferred OUT to the Internet = (7,190 MB / 1,024) * $0.128 per GB = $0.90

$0.04 + $0.07 + $0.90 = $1.01 total 

Example 3

A high-volume trading partner uses Stedi Buckets to store X12 EDI 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgements they are generating in response to Purchase Orders sent to them. A customer generates 100,000 EDI 855 messages per month (published to the Bucket by making a single PUT request), with an average file size of 400 bytes. An average of 500 MB worth of documents are kept in the Stedi Bucket during the month.

First 1,000 PUT requests = Free
Next 99,000 PUT requests = 99,000 * $0.0005 per request = $49.50 

First 10 MB storage = Free 
Next 490 MB storage = (490 MB / 1,024) * $0.19 per GB-month = 0.478 GB * $0.19 per GB-month = $0.09

Total data transit = (100,000 PUT requests) * 400 bytes =  38.2 MB
Fee for first 10 MB transferred = Free 
Fee for next 28.2 MB transferred = (28.2 MB / 1,024) * $0.00512 = $0.00

$49.50 + $0.09 + $0.00 = $49.59 total
