Though they don’t disclose numbers, I’m very much interested in just how much data Amazon moves and stores through their web services. I think that because not only have they lowered prices, they’ve added new pricing tiers for moving over 5 PB of data.
Anyways, starting July 1, new pricing for bandwidth goes into effect:
New data transfer price for US-Standard, US-West and Europe regions (effective July 1, 2011)
- $0.000 – first 1 GB / month data transfer out
- $0.120 per GB – up to 10 TB / month data transfer out (10 TB total)
- $0.090 per GB – next 40 TB / month data transfer out (50TB total)
- $0.070 per GB – next 100 TB / month data transfer out (150 TB total)
- $0.050 per GB – next 350 TB / month data transfer out (500 TB total)
- Contact us – next 524 TB / month data transfer out (1PB total)
- Contact us – next 4 PB / month data transfer out (5PB total)
- Contact us – data transfer out / month over 5 PB
According to Amazon, if you were moving 10TB in and 10TB out a month, your bill just went down 50%. Not bad.
CloudFront prices are also going down. For more specifics, visit the AWS Data Transfer Pricing Update detail page.
