Per-Second Billing for EC2 Instances and EBS Volumes


Posted on September 20th 2017

Effective October 2nd, usage of Linux instances that are launched in On-Demand, Reserved, and Spot form will be billed in one-second increments. Similarly, provisioned storage for EBS volumes will be billed in one-second increments.

This change is effective in all AWS Regions and will be effective October 2, for all Linux instances that are newly launched or already running. There is a 1 minute minimum charge per-instance.

Per-second billing is not currently applicable to instances running Microsoft Windows or Linux distributions that have a separate hourly charge.
