We are excited to announce the immediate availability of Reserved Instances with Windows, which work like Reserved Instances with Linux/UNIX. You simply pay a low, upfront fee for each Reserved Instances with Windows you want to reserve and in turn receive a significant discount on the hourly price during a 1 or 3 year period. After the one-time payment, that Windows-based instance is reserved for you, and you have no further obligation; you may choose to run that instance for the discounted usage rate for the duration of your term, or when you do not use the instance, you will not pay usage charges on it. You can find more detailed information on Reserved Instances at http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/reserved-instances/.
