Amazon AWS finally in Australia

Finally we can enjoy power and speed of Amazon AWS services, in Australia but… so far we can’t get full experience, it’s only for two services – Amazon Route 53 and Amazon CloudFront . So… in simple words we can enjoy with 100% SLA DNS service and global CDN with edge location based on Sydney.

Amazon RDS for $20 monthly

Amazon AWS just announced that Micro instances can be used for Amazon RDS with MySQL database engine which is really good news. Previously cheapest option  was Small Instance which was quite “expensive” with $0.105 USD for on hour (without reserved instances). Now we can use RDS with MySQL for $0.025 hourly! We can go even lower with reserved instances. Details about pricing are available here .
