For a limited time, AWS is offering a free trial program for Amazon CloudSearch that enables new users to set up fully-functional search domains that they can use for up to 30 days at no charge. The Amazon CloudSearch free trial program can be used to develop and test new search applications, migrate existing applications, or simply gain hands-on experience with Amazon CloudSearch. The free trial is available in the US East (N. Virginia) Region to users worldwide. Participation in the trial program requires an AWS account with a valid credit card.

Along with the introduction of the free trial program, we are announcing a reduction in CloudSearch search instance pricing in the US East (N. Virginia) Region. The new pricing reflects a savings of 17-19%, with small search instances available for $0.10/hour. The new pricing is effective November 1.

Some restrictions apply. For more details and information about the trial program and how to participate, see Amazon CloudSearch Free Trial. For pricing details and to learn more about Amazon CloudSearch, see the Amazon CloudSearch Overview.
