|Amazon EC2 Windows AMIs||On October 23, 2008, Amazon EC2 announced the release of Amazon EC2 instances with Microsoft Windows Server. For more information, see http://aws.amazon.com/windows.
What does this mean for your paid or supported AMIs?
You can continue to create and sell Linux/UNIX paid and supported AMIs. Any existing DevPay products you have are not affected.
Amazon DevPay does not yet support Windows paid or supported AMIs. This means that currently you can't associate a product code with a Windows AMI and sell the AMI through Amazon DevPay.
|Limitation on AWS services used||You can build an application that monetizes Amazon EC2 or Amazon Simple Storage Service, but not both.|
|Limitation on decimal places for prices||You can set prices with a maximum of only two decimal places.|
|Throttling of License Service requests per developer||Requests to the License Service are throttled as necessary. In the current version of Amazon DevPay, they are throttled per developer instead of per DevPay product. Therefore, if you have multiple DevPay products, the sum of the requests from all your DevPay products is used to determine whether your requests need to be throttled.|
|Information not available on the first of the month||If you visit your DevPay Activity page on the first of the month, your revenue statement for the previous month might not yet be available. We recommend that you instead view the page after you've received the e-mail from AWS indicating the revenue statement is available. |
Also, the page might display zeros for all the values because the page has not yet been updated with the information for the first day of the month. We recommend that you return to the page on the second day of the month.
|Value that is different than expected on the DevPay Activity page||Your DevPay Activity page displays the expected revenue and costs incurred by each of your DevPay products during the month. For a given product, the total dollar amount listed for a particular dimension in the "Revenue" section of the table might be slightly different than expected based on the per-unit price and the number of units listed on the page. For example, the price of $0.10 per GB-Month and usage of 20 GB-Months for an Amazon S3 product is displayed, but the resulting revenue is displayed as $2.04 instead of the expected $2.00. This is by design and can happen for two reasons:|
|Withdrawal limit||When you withdraw money from your DevPay account, the withdrawal amount must be at least $10.00.|
|No sandbox for testing||DevPay does not have a sandbox for testing. All testing you perform involves movement of real money.|
