    In order to help new amazon AWS customers get started in the cloud, AWS is introducing a free usage tier. New AWS customers will be able to run a free Amazon EC2 Micro Instance for a year, while also leveraging a free usage tier for Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic Block Store, Amazon Elastic Load Balancing, and AWS data transfer.

    AWS?s free usage tier can be used for anything you want to run in the cloud: launch new applications, test existing applications in the cloud, or simply gain hands-on experience with AWS.

    Below are the highlights of AWS?s free usage tiers:

    • 750 hours of Amazon EC2 Linux Micro Instance usage (613 MB of memory and 32-bit and 64-bit platform support) ? enough hours to run continuously each month
    • 750 hours of an Elastic Load Balancer plus 15 GB data processing
    • 10 GB of Amazon Elastic Block Storage, plus 1 million I/Os, 1 GB of snapshot storage, 10,000 snapshot Get Requests and 1,000 snapshot Put Requests
    • 5 GB of Amazon S3 standard storage, 20,000 Get Requests, and 2,000 Put Requests
    • 30 GB per of internet data transfer (15 GB of data transfer ?in? and 15 GB of data transfer ?out? across all services except Amazon CloudFront)
    • 25 Amazon SimpleDB Machine Hours and 1 GB of Storage
    • 100,000 Requests of Amazon Simple Queue Service
    • 100,000 Requests, 100,000 HTTP notifications and 1,000 email notifications for Amazon Simple Notification Service
    • 10 Amazon Cloudwatch alarms

    Not a bad deal. Just watch out, especially if you have a larger site with a lot of traffic. Paying piecemeal for hosting ADD'S UP QUICKLY.
