One of the most challenging aspects of the AWS ecosystem is navigating the pricing and sizing options when looking at EC2 instances.  Luckily, there is a rather nifty tool out there which has been created by a community member and hosted on GitHub which you can find at http://ec2Instances.info

The ec2Instances.info site lets you dig around all of the different configuration options including (at the time of this blog):

  • EC2 Instance types by region
  • Reserved Instance options
  • RDS Instance types (also at http://rdsinstances.info)
  • Pricing for On-Demand licenses such as Windows and SQL
  • Hourly/Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Yearly pricing detail

You can also see and contribute to the code directly on GitHub by visiting the source repository.

This is a very helpful resource that you should bookmark for reference. The project is being updated by 53 contributors (at the time of this blog) and has well over a 1000 stars on the GitHub project.

You can see from the column selector that there is a lot of potential data to show:

Big thanks go out to Garret Heaton for putting this together and sharing it out with the community.  Nicely done!
