Amazon S3: Price reduction

October 13, 2008

I know a lot of you get your Amazon Web Services news from me, so I thought I’d better mention this one. It’s huge!! 🙂

Amazon announced S3 price reductions as you scale. For us, since we’re way beyond 500TB, this is huge. And for any of you who are still in their first tier, it’s something to look forward to. 🙂

DevPay also got a significant new release, pricing-wise, recently, so if you’re interested in that, better check it out.

Thanks Amazon!

    Just so that you do not need to calculate yourself: over 500TB is over $61k/month (old $77k/month). Impressive. Thats 18000 Smugmug Standard Users (excluding taxes and other expences of course).

    I am beyond disappointed at this “price drop.” S3 is now over two years old and their base storage price has not dropped at all. I knew this drop was coming and I was ready to commit to a complete move to them, but I was expecting a maximum price of .12 for byte 1. I buy my own stuff for under $.50/GB one-time cost. Sure, I have to buy up-front, but even with mirroring, lease costs and management I can kill Amazon’s cost and count on better future price drops.

    What is your thinking behind not moving your databases to AWS?

    Canon FTL. I'll never buy another one of their camera's. This seals it. Peace.
