  1. This is really awesome. Shared to my inner circle and office already. The table you created is golden information. ๐Ÿ˜€ Just want to confirm. Is all the information valid in 2020?

  2. Very useful video and provides clarity on different pricing options in shot and so simply..highly recommend this to everyone who is in aws use/ implementation / learning..

  3. Dude, why did you not say how much an hour costs for on-demand. That is the information we are looking for. The info you gave is already on the AWS website.

  4. Very good explanation. Big thumbs up for you. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  5. HI Sir. I need urgent information, actually i have accidentally scheduled scheduled instances so how we can release those instances

  6. Hi ,

    If we can set the tag for auto-start and stop with on-demand, what would be difference it from scheduled reservation instants ? any advantage please ?

  7. hello and great thanks about your important videos.
    But you say that on demand payment is on hour boundaries . But in aws documentation is written that this is on one second boundaries , 1 minutes as minimum. see in :
    there "…On-Demand instances let you pay for compute capacity by the hour or second (minimum of 60 seconds) with no long-term commitments. … " . So what is the truth?

  8. Very Very useful VIdeo and good coverage. Could you please share your email ID to enroll for more tutorials from you on AWS

  9. You mentioned "No Upfront" Payment attribute NOT available for 3Yrs Term "Reserved Instances".
    But in AWS documentation there is nothing specifically mentioned on this for 3Yrs Term, Can You please clarify

  10. Doesn't AWS EC2 on-demand provide for per second billing now? Will be good to update the deck or flag this..

  11. In Scheduled reservation if i reserve instacne for daily 9am to 6pm. then during this time interval i will be able to use instance.What is we want to use instance on some other toe slots?
    we will not be able to use or start an instance on other time at 7pm , 8 pm etc ?

  12. Liked, great video! I made a quick tutorial for Reserved Instances here:

  13. You mentioned we can "re-sell" Reserved Instances if needed, so what happens to the 1 yr or 3 yr commitment in that case? Doesn't that break the commitment ?

  14. Hello , suppose one of my reserved instance going to expire in 7 days , and i buy it today , will i be charged from today or after 7 days , once my already reserved instance get expired ?
