New Amazon EC2 Micro Instances for 2 cents an hour

by Volker Weber

I can’t tell you how many of you have told me you’d like to run smaller applications at lower cost on EC2. These applications are typically low traffic/low throughput—web applications, web site hosting, various types of periodic cron jobs and the like.

I’m happy to say we have now built an instance type exactly for these purposes, called Micro instances, starting at $0.02 (two cents) per hour for Linux/Unix and $0.03 (three cents) per hour for Windows.

Plus storage and traffic of course.

The cpu costs are only 50% of my usage

I have been trying Hetzner recently with an 8GB quadcore that costs less than the EC2 small instance. There are even cheaper options too.

Wow! That's $175 per year.

The current spot instance price is $0.007 per hour, which is just over $60 per hour. There's no price history there yet, of course, so it will be interesting to see how that one fluctuates.

I meant "$60 per year" of course!
