Amazon Web Services (AWS) never ceases to amaze us. The month of October was eventful for all the stakeholders dealing with AWS. Ask why? Just when the AWS users were wishing that they had more flexibility in AWS Cloud Management, AWS announced the launch of Convertible RIs and the new Region Benefit scope, and the launch of new AWS East (Ohio) region. Here’s the round-up of these three new features:
What is it about: A new addition to EC2 Reserved Instances (RIs) ecosystem to bring in more flexibility.
How will it help: If you have committed RI for specified instance type depending on current usage and have suffered for not being able to utilize, then the new Convertible RIs will cater to this need. Plus, it will also provide up to 45% savings over on-demand instances. Read Botmetric blog, Making Sense of the New AWS EC2 Convertible RIs, to know more. Alternatively, you can also read this blog on AWS Week-in-Review page.
What is it about: A new addition to the RI attributes, called the Region Benefit scope
How will it help: Earlier you had to reserve RI into multiple AZs within a region, however, unused RIs would be charged; and switching between AZ of same region were generally chargeable. With the new Region Benefit, you can now be independent of AZ. Read Botmetric blog, Demystifying the New AWS Regional Benefit Scope: Making EC2 RIs AZ-Agnostic, to know more. Then again, you can also find and read this blog on AWS Week-in-Review page.
What is it about: The launch of new US East (Ohio region)
How will it help: The new region features multiple services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). Plus, it’s a great news for existing customers in US East (Virginia) region due to the potential opportunities it provides. Some of these include multi-region application deployments, lower cross region DR, business disaster recovery implementations, and more.
