Do Egress Charges still apply when we access data via APIs


  1. A Client has a cloud environment in AWS & GCP
  2. We use Azure
  3. We need to consume clients' data from their environments
  4. The data to be consumed can be via flat files, apis or databases - choice is on us.


My questions:

  1. Would consuming data via the client's APIs directly into a pub/sub application in Azure help bypass the egress charges?
  2. Are other ways we can bypass the AWS / GCP egress charges?
