On Wednesday Amazon Web Services cut prices on its EC2 Dedicated Instances pushing back the effective date to July 1.
By its count it's the 37th price reduction on AWS services since the infrastructure cloud's initial launch in 2006.
Dedicated Instances have only been around since 2011 and run on hardware dedicated to a single customer account touted as good for workloads where corporate policies or industry regulations dictate physical isolation from instances run by other customers at the host hardware level.
The price reduction applies to both the dedicated per-region fee and the per-instance On-Demand and Reserved Instance fees across all supported instance types and all AWS Regions.
On a blog, AWS said its Dedicated Per Region Fee has been cut 80% from $10 an hour to $2 an hour in any Region where at least one Dedicated Instance of any type is running.
The hourly cost of Dedicated On-Demand Instances has been cut up to 37%. By way of an example it says the price of an m1.xlarge Dedicated Instance in the US East (Northern Virginia) Region will drop from $0.840 per hour to $0.528 per hour.
And the hourly price and upfront fee charged for Dedicated Reserved Instances have been cut up to 57%. It said Dedicated Reserved Instances also provide additional savings of up to 65% compared to Dedicated On-Demand instances.
