cheap storage, computing power at amazon.

Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), found here. Here's a few things copied from Amazon's site.


  • $0.10 per instance-hour consumed (or part of an hour consumed).
  • Pay only for what you use.
  • $0.20 per GB of data transferred outside of Amazon (i.e., Internet traffic).
  • Data transferred between EC2 instances or EC2 and S3 is free.
  • $0.15 per GB-Month of Amazon S3 storage used for your images (charged by Amazon S3).

Each instance is like a 1.7GHz Xeon with 1.75GB RAM, 160GB of disk space, and 250Mbit/sec of bandwidth.
