    Guys from EC2 announced micro instances – it costs 2 (two) cents per hour for linux and now it’s will costs less than traditional dedicated hosting with root access – monthly payment for EC2 micro instance will be about 15 USD, and price for root/linux on dedicated hosting will be about 30 USD/month. It’s really good news – you can have 100 boxes cluster just for two usd per hour! Bad thing is that micro instances don’t have their own disk space – EBS only, looks like this best ever use case for this type of instances will be highly-distributed computational grid with all data stored in RAM. And don’t forget that EBS will costs you some money – $0.10 per allocated GB per month Amazon EBS also charges $0.10 per 1 million I/O requests you make to your volume . Fredrick Poller’s already check out micro instances performance by sysbench : Amazon EC2 Micro instance, how fast is it?.
