Starting today, you can launch t2.small instances when using Amazon Aurora. The on-demand pricing for t2.small is half that of t2.medium, which was previously announced in November 2016. T2 instances are a cost-effective option for development/test environments and light production workloads. You can run your database on r3 class instances for larger-scale production deployment.

Amazon Aurora t2.small and t2.medium instances are available in all AWS regions where Aurora is available. For more information on pricing, visit the pricing page.
