Amazon Web Services Trims Price for NoSQL Cloud Database

Amazon Web Services is cutting the price of its DynamoDB, a fully managed NoSQL database service.  The price of indexed data storage has decreased by up to 75% in all AWS regions. The price of provisioned throughput capacity has decreased by up to 35%.

AWS is also enhancing the service with a new Reserved Capacity option that offers significant savings over the normal price of DynamoDB provisioned throughput capacity. Purchasing Reserved Capacity incurs a one-time upfront fee and a commitment to paying for a minimum usage level, but offers up to 53% savings.
