Elastic Compute Service - ECS - Supports Reserved Instances

The reserved instance is a new billing method that helps you to reduce a large number of costs for pay-as-you-go instances and provides resource reservation. It also helps you to achieve an optimal balance in terms of both flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

Target customers: 1. DevOps users 2. Users who require frequent service switching, such as gaming industry users. 3. Users who prefer to mitigate the risk to the financial supply chain, such as users that pay by installments. Features released: ECS supports the reserved instance billing method. You can use this billing method to offset the bill for pay-as-you-go instances and set aside resources. Compared with the subscription billing method, you can use reserved instances to directly deliver compute power. Regardless of the relationship between discounts and specific instances, the RI billing method provides more flexibility and helps you to simplify the life-cycle management for instances. Supported payment options include full upfront, partial upfront, and zero upfront.
