AWS Free Usage Tier Adds Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Voiced by Polly

I’m happy to announce that the AWS Free Usage Tier now includes 750 hours of Red Hat Enterprise Linux usage on a t1.micro instance.

We have supported RHEL on EC2 since November of 2007, and we launched the AWS Free Usage Tier in December of 2010. We are combining these two offerings and customers eligible for the free usage tier now have the option to run RHEL as part of the 750 hours of monthly Linux usage.

You can use the AWS Marketplace (1-Click) or the AWS Management Console to launch a micro instance running RHEL:
