Amazon S3 changes its pricing: mostly cheaper


Old pricing:

New pricing, effective June 1:

This is great news for almost anyone (including Davidville!) using S3 to store medium-size to large files, since it’s cheaper for most transfers and only penalizes very high volumes of tiny transfers (with the per-request fees).

But most websites and services use S3 to host images, video, or other large media types that are uploaded once and downloaded a bunch of times. For that, this pricing is FAR cheaper, especially if you can break the 50 TB/month bracket to get $0.13 per additional GB.
