AWS Compute Savings Plan


Hi Team, Our customer has purchased $4 compute savings plan. When observed the savings plan coverage, it shows applied 67% for one instance type, 80% for another instance type, 79% for 3rd instance type. My understanding were, it should first cover 100% for one instance type (with max % savings) and then apply for other. But the above observation is confusion. Please someone clarify the doubt.

Regards, Nikhil Shah

You are correct, compute savings plans will cover the most expensive compute resource. When you say that these 3 instance types are being covered, are the resources running constantly or could it be that as things scale up/down that the savings plan is covering the most expensive resource for that hour?

  • You mentioned, it will apply to most expensive resource of the hour? I thought it will apply to most discounted resource. Also, does it mean compute savings plan apply hourly and not by end of billing on most discounted resource>?
