CloudWatch 的降價

更早之前就公告了,但剛剛才翻到:「AWS Price Reduction – CloudWatch Metrics」。 CloudWatch 從 2011 年這次的降幅算比較大的,最低的降幅都有 40%,而超過一萬個 metrics 的部分則是 80%,然後不同級距有不同降幅,最高到 96% (也就是原來的 4% 價錢)... Amazon EC2 的 CloudWatch 用了七個 metrics,所以如果有開 CloudWatch 進階版本的情況下,價錢從 $3.50 降到 $2.10: If you have EC2 Detailed Monitoring enabled you will also see … Continue reading

Amazon S3 與 Glacier 的降價...

這次 AWS 對 storage 類調降了不少幅度,包括了 S3 與 Glacier:「AWS Storage Update – S3 & Glacier Price Reductions + Additional Retrieval Options for Glacier」。 S3 的部份降幅都不算低,要注意的是這次是 2016/12/01 開始,並沒有回朔: We are reducing the per-GB price for S3 Standard Storage in most AWS regions, … Continue reading

AWS 美東第二區開放

如同之前 AWS 的規劃,宣佈啟用美東第二區了 (us-east-2,在俄亥俄州):「Now Open – AWS US East (Ohio) Region」。看了一下 EC2 的價錢,與 us-east-1 是同一個級別的,其他的服務應該是都差不多... 另外因為跨州了 (而且跟 us-east-1 很近),所以官方也推薦拿來做異地服務: With just 12 ms of round-trip latency between US East (Ohio) and US East (Northern Virginia), you can make good use … Continue reading

CloudFlare 對 HiNet 成本的抱怨 (還有其他 ISP...)

CloudFlare 特地寫了一篇討拍文在分析對六個 ISP 的超高成本:「Bandwidth Costs Around the World」。 其他的就不講了,先看對價錢的定義: As a benchmark, let's assume the cost of transit in Europe and North America is 10 units (per Mbps). 然後來看亞洲區以及 HiNet 的部份寫了什麼: Two Asian locations stand out as being especially expensive: … Continue reading

GitHub 大幅調漲企業方案

GitHub 推出以 user 數量計費的方案:「Introducing unlimited private repositories」。舊的方案可以參考在「web.archive.org」這邊記錄下來的內容。 這個方案下的個人帳號會大幅受益:原先最低消費的 USD$7/month 是 5 private repositories,現在變成 unlimited private repositories。 而企業方案將會大幅調漲,雖然現有的 Plan 還是存在,但有種開始殺雞的味道了。 以前 USD$200/month 可以買到 125 個 repository,現在只能給 22 個人用。同時因為 GitHub 對 deploy key 的限制,跨 repository 時無法重複使用同一把 key,就需要用到真正的 user account,這點就變成額外的成本了。 看了一下內部的數字,不是多一倍兩倍的費用,而是多一個數量級...
