Amazon reduces hosting prices for GovCloud

Amazon Web Services kicked off the new year with a  5 percent price reduction on certain EC2-optimized Linux cloud hosting services, including On-Demand and Reserved instances for R3 running Linux in the AWS GovCloud.

Amazon is also reducing the On-Demand, Reserved instances and dedicated host prices for C4, M4 and R3 instances running on Linux by 5 percent in northern Virginia, northern California and Oregon, as well as certain regions internationally, according to the company's blog.

Smaller reductions were also announced for the same instances running on Windows, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. New pricing for all are now in effect, and will be reflected on billing statements at the end of the month. The new AWS Price List API will be updated later in the month as well.
