Hi Experts,

I am new to cloud computing.

I am using Amazon EC2 with Windows Server 2008.

I am not very clear as to how the pricing works.

Can I save money by shutting the Windows Server down when I don't need to use it?

Regards,
Leigh

If you shut the *instance* down (an instance can stay in a running state even if the OS inside the instance is not running) then yes, you can save money. There is a FAQ on that:
