you said 6719 EUR/pa  ___max.___

yet you counted NO storage and NO bandwidth and no VAT.

With VAT you are at 7995e, without storage or bandwidth. that leave
you with 1344euro net-VAT for storage and bandwidth. even with a cap
of 1GB per month of bandwidth that leave us with 1.4TB of storage and
you get a tie...

I do not know exactly how much we will need of each, but I know that
20TB a month is enough.. and I know we can make do with 4TB
Are you volunteering to monitor the $-meter to figure out where we
stand week after week to make sure we do not run out ?

and that is
i2.4xlarge $7280 + $0.621 per Hour = $15K vat included. + badnwidth cost.
