Pricing Details
For region
Hourly Fees
Total hourly fees will vary by instance type and EC2 region.
Software annual pricing savings over hourly: 20%
Savings is based on the difference between the annual price and running the software at the hourly price for 24 hours over 365 days.
When you launch an instance, the instance type that you specify determines the hardware of the host computer used for your instance. Each instance type offers different compute, memory, and storage capabilities. Select an instance type based on the requirements of the application or software that you plan to run on your instance. Please visit the Instance Types documentation for more details.
EBS General Purpose (SSD) volumes
You are charged once a month for both the space and performance that you reserve. Please visit the EBS pricing for more details.

On-Demand Instances let you pay for compute capacity by the hour 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.
