Today, we are announcing the Amazon CloudFront Security Savings Bundle, a flexible self-service pricing plan that helps you save up to 30% on your CloudFront bill in exchange for a monthly spend commitment for a 1-year term. The savings bundle also includes free AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall) usage up to 10% of your committed amount. Any additional Standard CloudFront or WAF charges not covered by the CloudFront Security Savings Bundle still apply.
With CloudFront Security Savings Bundle, you have the flexibility to choose the monthly commitment that best meets your workloads and maximize savings. For example, if you commit $70 per month, you get CloudFront usage worth $100 covered (a 30% discount). This usage benefit is not limited to data delivered by CloudFront, but applies to all CloudFront usage types including Lambda@Edge. Additionally, customers can take advantage of AWS WAF to protect their web application against common web exploits. In this example, the savings bundle also covers $7 worth of AWS WAF charges, covering up to 11.6M WAF requests.
Enabling the CloudFront Security Savings Bundle is easy. From the CloudFront console, you can use the built-in savings estimator and recommendations capability to estimate your savings based on your historical usage or manual inputs. You can also add multiple Savings Bundles to cover future growth in usage.
