The instances run until you stop them.

You pay for what you use.


AWS EC2 Savings Plan

The savings plan is a commitment for usage over a 1-year or 3-year term.

Committing to a period gives a discounted price.

If you surpass the budget, the cost goes to normal (on-demand) prices.

You will learn more about AWS Cost Explorer later in this tutorial.

AWS Cost Explorer is a tool that helps to plan usage with AWS Cloud.


Reserved Instances

The Reserved Instances are used to reserve instances for an agreed period.

The options are for 1-year or 3-years. The latter one gives the highest discount.



Spot Instances

This pricing model is best for workloads with flexible start and end times, which can take interruptions.

Spot instances can give up to a 90% cost savings.

The reason behind the discount is that AWS can optimize its capacity, giving you better prices.


Dedicated Hosts

Dedicated hosts are physical servers fully dedicated to you.

You can use your existing VM software licenses.

The Dedicated Host is the most expensive model.
