Amazon 40% cut and CMIPS benchmarks with Amazon m3.2xlarge and c3.4xlarge

Blue bar: CMIPS - More is better (Performance) Red bar: CUPS - Less is cheaper (Cost Unit Process)

Blue bar: CMIPS – More is better (Performance)
Red bar: CUPS – Less is cheaper (Cost Unit Process)

Amazon has reduced up to 40% their prices, with effect today 1st April.

Note: I noticed t1.micro, hi1.4xlarge and cr1.8xlarge prices didn’t change.

Detailed results, with pricing update. More CMIPS score is better:
