Amazon EC2 t1.micro swizz !
Just got my bill from Amazon for the 2 instances Im running and find Ive been charged for 728 hours on one of them – I thought this was supposed to be free for a year ! Reading again the small print (ugh) it seems you are entitled to 750 hours free, but it doesn’t explicitely say per instance. So – it seems its per account and you can run as many instances as you like and use a total of 750 hours across them in total before you get charged. Then again, I suppose thats reasonable enough – Amazon wouldn’t want to have every SME in the world running in the cloud for free, for a year when you could be getting cash from them, would you ? I must have been in a daze 🙂
