Purchasing savings plans


Hello, if I have ec2 instances that belong to an EKS group, and I buy savings plans of the ec2 type, is the discount applied or does it only apply to instances that are not under a managed service?

According to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/savingsplans/latest/userguide/what-is-savings-plans.html, EC2 Instance saving plans do NOT automatically apply to Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS using Fargate. I have updated above answer to reflect also this.

On the other hand, Compute saving plans do apply also for ec2 under managed services. https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2020/08/amazon-fargate-aws-eks-included-compute-savings-plan/

Hope it helps
