Effective August 1, 2021, Amazon is reducing data processing charges for VPC Interface Endpoints (powered by PrivateLink). The new tiered pricing will reduce the costs for accessing high-volume, data intensive services over PrivateLink.

PrivateLink enables customers to access Amazon Web S ervices or any other service hosted on Amazon Web Services in a secure and scalable manner, while keeping all the network traffic within the Amazon Web Services network.

Prior to this change, customers paid a flat rate of ¥0.07 per GB for data processed over VPC Interface Endpoints. With the new pricing, customers who access data-intensive Amazon Web Services, like Amazon S3 and Amazon Kinesis, or 3rd party service offerings over VPC Interface Endpoints can pay as low as ¥0.028 per GB for data processing. The reduced prices will be based on the total monthly volume of data processed by all VPC Interface Endpoints in an Amazon Web Services Region. The new pricing is as follows:

Data Processed (per month) Old Pricing (per GB) New Pricing (per GB)
First 1 PB ¥0.07 ¥0.07
Next 4 PB ¥0.07 ¥0.042
Anything over 5 PB ¥0.07 ¥0.028

This new pricing is applicable to all Amazon Web Services Regions including Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. You do not need to make any changes to your VPC Interface Endpoints to benefit from the price reduction. Visit here to learn more about PrivateLink.
