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.
