    Curious about pricing AWS | Elastic Load Balancing | Application Load Balancer Pricing seems it's based on regions and ranges from:
    • $0.0225 per Application Load Balancer-hour (or partial hour) + $0.008 per LCU-hour (or partial hour)
    • $0.0243 per Application Load Balancer-hour (or partial hour) + $0.008 per LCU-hour (or partial hour)
    • $0.0252 per Application Load Balancer-hour (or partial hour) + $0.008 per LCU-hour (or partial hour)
    Ouch that is kind of expensive for 1 new connection per second lasting 2 minutes and 300KB bandwidth = $22.39/month ! Better off using Nginx as load balancer at TCP or Application level or using Haproxy :)
