Amazon ElastiCache adds support for Standard Reserved Instances (RI) for M5 and R5 nodes, providing flexible payment options and cost savings to meet your business needs. RIs give you the option to reserve an ElastiCache node for a one- or three-year term including No Upfront, Partial Upfront and All Upfront payment options. 

Standard RIs are available in all regions that support M5 and R5 nodes. To learn more about Standard RI pricing, please visit the Amazon ElastiCache Reserved Instances Page

Existing Heavy, Medium, and Light Utilization RIs offered on prior node families will continue to be available for purchase. However, the old RI model will no longer be offered on M5, R5 and future node families. 

To get started, log in to the AWS Management Console
