Does AWS have no equivalent of GCP cloud run for scale to 0 huge savings in staging/preproduction?

NOTE: I am looking to stay in AWS but in comparing bills to my previous successful startup(using GCP), I am seeing massive differences in cost due to cloud run going to 0 instances and amazon staying on. Duplicating production to preproduction and staging can be expensive and using cloud run at our previous company(15 microservices), our preproduction and staging environments would frequently just scale to 0 and we would pay ZERO over weekends over all the nights, etc. I am looking at our current bill and this company is identical in all the technologies and identical in usage(I mean it could not be more apples to apples which is sort of crazy to me). I dug deeper and none of our systems are scaling back to 0. (much like AWS lambdas does). Is there no solution in AWS for this? What I tried: Elastic Beanstalk defaulted min=1 instance max=5 instances so I changed it to min=0. It successfully scaled back to 0 and then when I sent web request in, I got a 503 :( instead of request taking a while and spinning a server back up. AWS EKS, we tried setting to 0 and in that case it went down to 0 and then a web request just timed out instead of waiting for an instance to spin up and serve the request The ideal situation: Servers instances spin down to 0 when not in use When a request comes in, an instance spins up and serves that request(first request takes longer, yes) and then the 2nd request is lightning fast. Does AWS have no cloud run type of system? I know they have lambdas but having APIs with 5-10 methods/lambdas is a much easier way to architect a system and leads to better reviews in our monorepo on those contracts between systems.

Root account no permissions

Hi All, I have not used my Amazon account for a while. I think it was free-tier to begin with. I wanted to start re-using it. I logged on and find I have no access to Billing. I also have no access to Organizations. I can assign privileges to IAM users. I had an existing user under IAM and I gave it Administrator and BillingAccess privileges. I logged on with that user, but when it browses to Organizations or Billing, it also gets permission denied issues. Example with root account accessing "Account": You Need Permissions You don't have permission to access billing information for this account. Contact your AWS administrator if you need help. If you are an AWS administrator, you can provide permissions for your users or groups by making sure that (1) this account allows IAM and federated users to access billing information and (2) you have the required IAM permissions. I get the same error when IAM user with billing permissions accesses "Billing". I cannot even create a support case using root account. It says I have no access and I was placed in support plan Basic, but then there is no way to create a case. When I click "Create case": An error occurred when we tried to process your request User: arn:aws:iam::ID:root is not authorized to perform: support:DescribeServices with an explicit deny in a service control policy User: arn:aws:iam::ID:root is not authorized to perform: support:DescribeSeverityLevels with an explicit deny in a service control policy You don't have the necessary IAM permissions to view that support case. Learn more Then under "Create case" the various case options are grayed out. Thanks!

Data Transfer OUT Charges Through TGW in Another Account

Who is responsible for data transfer OUT charges when the transfer is originated by a VPC in one account, and that data passes through a Transit Gateway in another account on its way out through a Direct Connect (DX and TGW owned by the same account)? ***Details*** With the recent announcement on Direct Connect granular cost allocation (https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/10/aws-direct-connect-aws-direct-connect-announces-the-support-for-granular-cost-allocation-and-removal-of-payer-id-restriction-for-direct-connect-gateway-association/), it is stated that we now "allocate Data Transfer Out charges to the AWS account responsible for the Data Transfer." I have a customer who acts as a transport service provider, and they own multiple DX connections that they plan to connect to Transit Gateways via a Transit VIF and DX-GW. The customers of my customer have VPCs in separate accounts that will be connected to my customer's TGW. With my customer owning the TGW, I am unclear on whether the cost allocation per the above announcement will consider the owner of the TGW responsible for the data transfer OUT, or whether that responsibility will be attributed to the owner of the VPC that originated the transfer. Also, if traffic routes through a firewall or IPS in Transit VPC owned by the DX an TGW owner on the way out of AWS, will that change the consideration of cost allocation?
