AWS Lightsail / EC2 sizing

Last Modified: 2019-04-28
We're considering deploying a Lightsail instance for a client

We need:
Windows Server 2016 Standard - 6 CAL's
SQL Server 2017 - 6 CAL's

So far I've been unable to contact AWS to obtain pricing. I completed a Sales enquiry form a few days ago and have not received a response

1. How to contact AWS to obtain pricing?
2. Assuming I have to wait for AWS to respond, does anyone who use Lightsail have an idea what the pricing is likely to be (we're based in Aust).
3. If we decided to try and deploy via EC2 instead, how would we "size" / convert the above spec into an equivalent EC2 config?
