What is the limit of bandwidth if I want to use both DigitalOcean App Platform and DigitalOcean Spaces ?

Hello there!

Thank you in advance for you help.

I am currently hosting an app on AWS Amplify and store videos and other medium size files in S3 with CloudFront CDN.

I am working on a project with a small team and we are very excited to go live soon! However, I am shifting towards finding a new cloud solution for our project.. we need to optimize our monthly costs.

That being said, our main motivation is how much bandwidth or data transfer we can get for the best price!

I heard good things about DO and even by looking at the price charts it seems like a good fit for our budget and vision! However I read that if I host my app in DO App, then the maximum outbound transfer would be 1GB (per app?)… however in DO Spaces it allows 1,024 GiB.

If I combine the two services, would I be charged on DO App Platform if I exceed the 1 Gig outbound transfer limit? Should we go with another service like Droplets to host our app (server side rendered PWA in Reactjs and Nextjs)

If you have better service recommendations I would appreciate that a lot! Looking forward to your answer.
