(RI) provide a significant
discount (up to 72%) compared to On-Demand pricing and provide a capacity
reservation when used in a specific Availability Zone. The following types of
RI are available:
Standard RIs: These provide the most significant
discount (up to 75% off On-Demand) and are best suited for steady-state usage.
Convertible RIs: These provide a discount (up to 54% off On-Demand)
and the capability to change the attributes of the RI as long as the exchange
results in the creation of Reserved Instances of equal or greater value. Like
Standard RIs, Convertible RIs are best suited for steady-state usage.
Scheduled RIs: These are available to launch within the
time windows you reserve. This option allows you to match your capacity
reservation to a predictable recurring schedule that only requires a fraction
of a day, a week, or a month.
