We are excited to announce that Amazon S3 has reduced storage prices by up to 31% in three S3 storage classes. Specifically we are reducing the storage price for S3 Standard-Infrequent Access and S3 One Zone-Infrequent Access by up to 31% in 9 AWS Regions: Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), US West (Northern California), and South America (Sao Paulo).

In addition, S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval (formerly S3 Glacier) is now optimized for use cases such as backup and disaster recovery, by offering free bulk retrievals, and a 10% storage price reduction in all AWS Regions. Together, these changes will help to further reduce your cost of S3 storage while benefiting from the simplicity, durability, and virtually unlimited scalability of Amazon S3.

All of the S3 storage price reductions will be effective December 1, 2021 and will be automatically reflected in your AWS bill. For more information on the Region specific price reductions in each S3 storage class, see the blog post, and visit the S3 pricing page.
