Amazon Lightsail extends to Asia, free trial

Since this month, Amazon Lightsail officially set foot in Asia Pacific with 4 new locations: Tokyo, Singapore, Mumbai and Sydney.

Amazon Lightsail is Amazon’s new half year service, which makes it easy to create, use and manage virtual servers on the AWS cloud.

Similar to other cloud services, VPS here uses SSDs, static IPs (like Floating IP’s, Vultr’s Reserved IPs), DNS support (Amazon’s name server), Snapshot. Also, you can use Windows on the server here, of course the price will be higher than when using the Linux OS.

The price of Amazon Lightsail is the same as that of DigitalOcean, so RAM will be only 1/2 compared to Vultr or Linode. Currently, for instance $5 you get free trial first month.

In addition to the 4 newly opened areas, Amazon Lightsail is currently available in US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), and EU (London) for you choose when creating the instance.
