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 platform.

Similar to other cloud services, VPS here uses SSDs, static IPs (like Floating IPs of DO, Reserved IPs from Vultr), DNS support (Amazon’s name server), Snapshot.

Amazon Lightsail’s price is the same as that of DigitalOcean, so RAM will be half that of Vultr or Linode. Currently, for instance $5 you get free first month.

In addition to the four 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.
