Free AWS Services

Cloud 1 Comment on Free AWS Services 611

Amazon does a very good job of reaching out to the tech community to promote their products. One offer that is many times overlooked is their Free Tier of Services. If you’re looking to test out AWS, or to build a prototype for your Startup this free tier may be a very good option.

The free services offered include not just EC2 Compute or S3 storage, but most everything including CloudFront CDN, Elastic Transcoder and SES Email Sending.  The best part of this offer is that it’s not a 30 or 90 day trial, rather you simply receive a specific amount of resources per month for at least 12 months.

Check out the Free Tier from AWS here:

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.

    I have used this service and still do. Its a cheap efficient way of setting up email servers without the hardware outlay.
