    Amazon announce free web services

    AWS Free Usage Tier

    To help new AWS customers get started in the cloud, AWS is introducing a new free usage tier. Beginning November 1, new AWS customers will be able to run a free Amazon EC2 Micro Instance for a year, while also leveraging a new free usage tier for Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic Block Store, Amazon Elastic Load Balancing, and AWS data transfer. AWS’s free usage tier can be used for anything you want to run in the cloud: launch new applications, test existing applications in the cloud, or simply gain hands-on experience with AWS.

    Below are the highlights of AWS’s new free usage tiers. All are available for one year (except Amazon SimpleDB, SQS, and SNS which are free indefinitely):



    AWS’s free usage tier starts November 1, 2010. A valid credit card is required to sign up.

    AWS Free Usage Tier (Per Month):
    • 750 hours of Amazon EC2 Linux Micro Instance usage (613 MB of memory and 32-bit and 64-bit platform support) – enough hours to run continuously each month*
    • 750 hours of an Elastic Load Balancer plus 15 GB data processing*
    • 10 GB of Amazon Elastic Block Storage, plus 1 million I/Os, 1 GB of snapshot storage, 10,000 snapshot Get Requests and 1,000 snapshot Put Requests*
    • 5 GB of Amazon S3 storage, 20,000 Get Requests, and 2,000 Put Requests*
    • 30 GB per of internet data transfer (15 GB of data transfer “in” and 15 GB of data transfer “out” across all services except Amazon CloudFront)*
    • 25 Amazon SimpleDB Machine Hours and 1 GB of Storage**
    • 100,000 Requests of Amazon Simple Queue Service**
    • 100,000 Requests, 100,000 HTTP notifications and 1,000 email notifications for Amazon Simple Notification Service**
    In addition to these services, the AWS Management Console is available at no charge to help you build and manage your application on AWS.

    For anyone wondering what this is, it is essentially a free virtual server in Amazon's data centre for you to use for a year. Useful for web development.
