We are excited to announce the availability of reserved nodes for Amazon MemoryDB for Redis. Reserved nodes allow you to save up to 55% over On-Demand node prices in exchange for a usage commitment over a one- or three-year term. Reserved nodes are complementary to MemoryDB On-Demand nodes and give businesses flexibility to help reduce costs. Reserved nodes can be reserved for one-year or three-year terms with No Upfront, Partial Upfront and All Upfront payment options.

MemoryDB reserved nodes offer size flexibility within a node family and AWS Region. This means that the discounted reserved node rate will be applied automatically to usage of each size in the same node family. For example, if you purchase a r6g.xlarge reserved node and need to scale to a larger node r6g.2xlarge, your reserved node discounted rate is automatically applied to 50% usage of r6g.2xlarge node in the same AWS Region. The size flexibility capability will reduce the time that you need to spend managing your reserved nodes and since you’re no longer tied to a specific database node size, you can get the most out of your discount even if your database needs updates. 

Reserved nodes are available for the memory optimized R6g and R6gd (with data tiering) instances and in the AWS Regions where MemoryDB is available. To get started using MemoryDB reserved nodes, you can use the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or AWS Software Development Kit (SDK).
