AWS Gets Cheaper

Technology is supposed to get cheaper over time, right? In the history of enterprise software and desktop OS when has that been true? AWS is no doubt responding to competitive pressures, which indicates the market is working as it should, and this is a welcome development because anytime your costs drop you add dollars to the bottom line.

We’ve often told you that one of our goals is to drive down costs continuously and to pass those savings on to you. We have been able to reduce our costs for data transfer, so we’re pleased to announce that we’re lowering our pricing for data transfer, effective May 1, 2008. You’ll notice below that we’ve reduced price at every existing usage tier of transfer out, as well as added an additional tier for the heaviest users.
