Converting to be an annual customer.

This feature is only available for instances hosted on AWS.

Upgrading to an annual subscription confers many benefits on the user, including savings over the hourly rate and Matillion ETL availability on all AWS regions.

Note: Annual subscriptions work similar to "Reserved Instances" work in Amazon EC2 and other AWS Services. when an Annual Subscription is purchased it will reduce to 0 the price of *any* instance that is running of the same type and region. Additional instances will not be covered by the annual subscription and will be paid at the standard hourly rate. For full information on AWS Annual Subscriptions, visit the Amazon AWS documentation
