Prices Reduced for EC2’s M3 Instances

by Jeff Barr | on | in Amazon EC2, Price Reduction | | Comments

I am happy to announce that we are reducing the On-Demand and Reserved Instance prices for Amazon EC2’s M3 (Second Generation Standard) instances, effective November 1.

We are lowering the On-Demand prices of M3 instances by 10%. Regardless of which region you are running M3 instances in, these price reductions will automatically be reflected in your AWS charges.

Here are the new and old On-Demand prices in the US East (Northern Virginia) Region. See the EC2 Pricing page for prices in the other Regions:

Instance Type New On-Demand Price Old On-Demand Price
m3.xlarge $0.45/hour $0.50/hour
m3.2xlarge $0.90/hour $1.00/hour

We have also lowered the prices for new M3 Reserved Instances by 15%. This price reduction applies to Reserved Instance purchases made on or after November 1, 2013.
