re:Post – Question and Answer platform for AWS Community

Update 2nd December, 2021: The community guidelines have been updated.

If you are on internet and belong to tech industry then you know stack-overflow and other similar forums and platforms where questions are posted and answered with-in minutes by the expert in the field.

AWS has launched a similar platform called re:Post which is going to replace previous AWS forums. re:Post is available for all AWS users including free tier users, its a crowdsourced platform where user can ask their questions and they will be answered by AWS experts, community members, partners and other customers as well.

re:Post has a voting system which allows re:Post users to vote questions and answers based on the quality and detail provided by the user. This is crowdsourced moderation and allows great answers to rank at the top which will help any future users to know which answer is more appropriate.

re:Post has its own community guidelines so make sure to read them, before using the platform.

Frequently asked questions are also very important and should be read before using the platform specially the questions explaining what are different components of the platform e.g topic, tag and community groups.

In my view its a great platform for AWS community and will be really helpful for any new AWS users to get their issues resolved by other AWS users.

Yet another reduction in Amazon S3 prices.

Amazon has decreased S3 prices yet again. This is one of the benefits of cloud storage that the price to store your data is never fixed, but it will always go down because of the competition and newer and effective methods of storage.

With Amazon S3 it’s not only the benefit of price reduction in storage but you also get reliable delivery of your data to your users and versioning support for your critical data.

The new price list is as follows:

First 1TB is $0.140 per GB
Next 49TB is $0.125 per GB
Next 450TB is $0.110 per GB
Next 500TB is $0.095 per GB
Next 4000TB is $0.080 per GB
Over 5000TB is $0.055 per GB

The prices for reduced redundancy storage are all 1/3 of standard storage so they are automatically reduced too. The new pricing for reduced redundancy storage are as follows:

First 1TB is $0.093 per GB
Next 49TB is $0.083 per GB
Next 450TB is $0.073 per GB
Next 500TB is $0.063 per GB
Next 4000TB is $0.053 per GB
Over 5000TB is $0.037 per GB

According to the Amazon Web Services Blog post there will be more new announcements in near future so stay tuned for more good new from S3 team.
