|Free Amazon AWS|
|Saturday, 23 October 2010|
Amazon AWS can be free to use for a year - but only if a micro instance will do the job.
To help developers get started in the cloud, Amazon AWS has introduced a new free usage tier. From November 1, new AWS customers will be able to run a free Amazon EC2 Micro Instance for a year and use 5 GB of Amazon S3 storage, and free tiers of Amazon Elastic Block Store, Amazon Elastic Load Balancer, and AWS data transfer.
In addition, customers can benefit from the existing free tiers for Amazon SimpleDB, Amazon Simple Queue Service, and Amazon Simple Notifications Service. This is enough to build and test most applications as long as they fit into a Micro Instance which isn't very powerful.
The specification of the free service in detail is:AWS Free Usage Tier (Per Month):
In addition to these services, the AWS Management Console is available at no charge to help you build and manage your application on AWS.
After the year your use of AWS reverts to the standard charging rates.
