    Let me plug-in a couple more 100% free solutions for cost estimation I have been creating in the open-source: 1. terraform-cost-estimation.com - web-service which accepts terraform plan or terraform state. 2. https://github.com/antonbabenko/terraform-cost-estimation - Anonymized, secure, and free Terraform Cost Estimation tool using cost.modules.tf service. There are instructions on how to integrate this in CI/CD pipeline or with OPA, as well as explaining what does make it really anonymized. 3. Weekly Youtube videos of me developing/hacking Terraform AWS pricing module - part1, part2, part3.
