AWS recently lowered prices again for compute, storage, caching, and database services for all customers, making everything from web apps to big data on AWS even more cost-effective and widening the TCO gap with traditional infrastructure. If you're new to AWS, or if it's been a while since you last ran the TCO numbers for your workloads, it’s time to take another look.
AWS continues to lower the cost of cloud computing for its customers. In 2014, AWS has reduced the cost of compute by an average of 30%, storage by an average of 51% and relational databases by an average of 28%. AWS continues to drive down the cost of your IT infrastructure: use our new TCO calculator to see the difference.
