We happily announce that an EC2 price reduction will go in to effect on December 1, 2016, just in time to make your holiday season just a little bit more cheerful! Our engineering investments, coupled with our scale and our time-tested ability to manage our capacity, allow us to identify and pass on the cost savings to you.

We are reducing prices for C4, M4, and T2 instances, depending on platform (Linux, RHEL, SUSE, Windows, and so forth). Price cuts apply across all Amazon Web Services Regions. For example:

  • Amazon Web Services China (BJS) region, operated by SINNET, reduces the price of M4 and T2 instances up to 10%, and C4 instances up to 5%.

As always, you do not need to take any action in order to benefit from the reduction in On-Demand prices. If you are using billing alerts or our newly revised budget feature, you may want to consider revising your thresholds downward as appropriate.
