Amazon Reduces Outbound Data Transfer Pricing
Last December, Amazon Web Services lowered their pricing for the S3 storage service. Today Amazon announced that they have reduced the outbound data transfer chages for all of their services by $0.02/GB. The affected services include: Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon SimpleDB, Amazon SQS, Amazon RDS, and Amazon VPC.
The new outbound data transfer pricing will be:
- First 10 TB per Month: $0.15 per GB
- Next 40 TB per Month: $0.11 per GB
- Next 100 TB per Month: $0.09 per GB
- Over 150 TB per Month: $0.08 per GB
Amazon CloudFront, their content delivery network (CDN), has also reduced rates for the service by $0.02/GB. Amazon’s Jeff Barr noted, “We are constantly working to drive our costs down and become more operationally efficient. We then pass on those cost savings to our customers in the form of lower prices.”
In other cloud computing news, last month Rackspace raised their cloud service monthly base pricing by 50% to a base rate of $150/month and reduced their overage charges.
