We are excited to announce the addition of Amazon EBS-backed Amazon EC2 instances to give users more instance types to choose for their development needs, including the AWS Free Usage Tier-eligible micro instance. Users now have the ability to use micro instances to reduce costs in development environments as well as larger instance types such as the second generation M3 family for applications that demand more performance. See offer terms for more details and other restrictions on the AWS Free Usage Tier.
