On-Demand Nodes let you pay for memory capacity by the hour your node runs with no long-term commitments. This frees you from the costs and complexities of planning, purchasing, and maintaining hardware and transforms what are commonly large fixed costs into much smaller variable costs.
Pricing is per node-hour consumed, from the time a node is launched until it is terminated. Each partial node-hour consumed will be billed as a full hour.
With Reserved Nodes, you can choose to make a one-time up-front payment, no upfront payment and pay low hourly charges, or one-time upfront payment with lower hourly charges for each node you wish to reserve for a 1 or 3 year term. In return, you receive a significant discount off the ongoing hourly usage rate for the node(s) you reserve. Amazon ElastiCache provides Standard and Heavy Utilization Reserved Nodes for its current cache node families. To learn more about Reserved Nodes, please visit our Reserved Nodes page.
You may designate cache nodes as Reserved Nodes by calling the Purchasing API or selecting the Reserved Node option in the AWS console. When you designate a cache node as Reserved Node, you must designate a region, cache node type, Reserved Node type, and quantity for the applicable Reserved Node. The Reserved Node may only be used in the designated region. We may terminate the Reserved Node pricing program at any time. In addition to being subject to Reserved Node pricing, Reserved Nodes are subject to all data transfer and other fees applicable under the AWS Customer Agreement or other agreement with us governing your use of our services.

Backup storage is the storage associated with the automated and user-initiated snapshots you have taken. Amazon ElastiCache provides storage space for one snapshot free of charge for each active ElastiCache for Redis cluster. Additional backup storage is $0.085/GB every month (same price in all regions). Data transfer for using the snapshots is free of charge.
