Hoje a AWS RDS anunciou na sua newsletter o suporte às novas instâncias T2.

Na prática, isso significa que usar um banco de dados pequeno no RDS ficou mais barato.
Se você usa uma instância m1, fique atento para a troca de geração de máquinas.

A db.t1.micro de 1 vCPU e 0.613 Gb de RAM e a db.m1.small com 1 vCPU e 1.7 Gb de RAM podem ser substituídas.

Você pode trocar por uma db.t2.micro com 1 vCPU e 1 Gb de RAM ou uma db.t2.small com 1 vCPU e 2 Gb de RAM.

E veja que, por exemplo, para um banco MySQL na região US East 1 (Virgínia) uma db.t1.micro custa On Demand $0.025 por hora, e uma db.t2.micro custa $0.017 por hora. É um desconto de 30% para te dar um upgrade de hardware.

Compare os preços das máquinas novas no RDS com os preços da geração anterior.

Veja abaixo o conteúdo da Newsletter:

Dear Amazon RDS Customer,

You can now take advantage of the T2 instance type with Amazon RDS. T2 instances are a new low-cost standard instance type designed to provide a baseline level of CPU performance with the ability to burst above the baseline. These instances are recommended for workloads that don’t use the full CPU often or consistently, but occasionally need to burst to higher CPU performance, such as small database workloads in test and developer environments.
T2 DB Instances feature the latest Intel Xeon processors, with clock speeds up to 3.3 GHz during burst periods, and are offered at prices up to 40% lower than comparable T1/M1 DB Instances.

Amazon RDS supports the use of T2 DB Instance types with MySQL 5.6, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server (except for Standard Edition — License Included). Support for MySQL versions 5.1 and 5.5 is coming soon. T2 DB Instances are available in all AWS Regions except GovCloud (US).

To use T2 DB Instance types, you can either launch a new instance or perform a scale operation on an instance running a supported engine type. Amazon RDS for MySQL customers running MySQL 5.5 who wish to use T2 instances should first upgrade from MySQL 5.5 to MySQL 5.6 before performing an instance scale operation.

Pricing for T2 database instances starts at $0.008/hour (effective price) for 3 year Heavy Utilization Reserved Instances and $0.017/hour for On-Demand usage. These pricing examples are for MySQL instances in the US East (N. Virginia) AWS Region. For more information on pricing, visit the Amazon RDS pricing page.

To learn more about T2 instances, see the Amazon RDS instance class table.

Sincerely,
The Amazon RDS Team
