Savings Plans and AWS Fargate

Savings Plans are a pricing model that offer significant savings on AWS usage. This pricing model offers lower prices on your AWS Fargate usage. You commit to a consistent amount of usage, in USD per hour, for a term of 1 or 3 years, and receive a lower price for that usage. For more information, see the Savings Plans User Guide.

Each type of usage has an On-Demand rate and a Savings Plans price. For example, if you commit to $10/hour of compute usage, you'll receive Savings Plans prices on all usage up to $10. Any usage beyond the commitment is charged at On-Demand rates.

Savings Plans are available for 1 year or 3 year terms. You have the choice between All Upfront, Partial upfront, or No upfront payment options.

The following Savings Plans type is available for Fargate usage. For a full list of Savings Plans for both Amazon EC2 and Fargate usage, see Savings Plans and Amazon ECS in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.

  • Compute Savings Plans provide the most flexibility and provide a discount of up to 66 percent. These plans automatically apply to your Fargate usage. You can move your Amazon ECS tasks from using Amazon EC2 to Fargate at any time and continue to receive the discounted rate provided by your Compute Savings Plan.
