Any S3 experience people able to help with a really simple question?

S3 - as far as I can see is a pay as you go service, and reasonably priced.

Though… I don’t want any code I build to screw up and create a massive amount of expensive usage cost on an S3 bucket - however unlikely.

Why can’t I find a simple “Limit my usage to 100G” type option?

You can set overall budget limits in AWS billing. You will get emails when you are approaching a set % of your set monthly budget. I expect you can get a lot more control than that over it - I just had alarms set when I was over 85% of an estimated total monthly bill
