AWS provides enterprises with multiple ways to consume services based on your business needs. Traditional on-demand instances allow you to pay for capacity by the hour without any long-term commitments or upfront payments. This model provides the most flexibility and is ideal for new initiatives that lack baseline resource needs. Reserved instances are ideal for applications with steady-state or predictable usage and can provide up to a 75% discount compared to on-demand pricing.
AWS empowers customers to buy all their services under consistent and predictable models. Enterprises can work with one or multiple accounts giving departments, affiliates and divisions their required level of control.
AWS gives customers the option to purchase Reserved Instances that help further reduce costs. By using Reserved Instances customers can improve budget predictability, further supporting procurement processes.
Customers also have the option to enroll in an Enterprise Agreement with AWS. Enterprise Agreements give customers the option to tailor agreements that best suit their needs. For additional information on Enterprise Agreements please contact your sales representative.
