Amazon Elasticsearch Service Reserved Instances - Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances and Other AWS Reservation Models

Amazon Elasticsearch Service Reserved Instances

Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES) Reserved Instances (RIs) offer significant discounts compared to standard On-Demand Instances. The instances themselves are identical—RIs are just a billing discount applied to On-Demand Instances in your account. For long-lived applications with predictable usage, RIs can provide considerable savings over time. Amazon ES RIs require one- or three-year terms and have three payment options that affect the discount rate.
