Amazon EC2 instance comparison site

Latest commit 6ddf151 Jun 29, 2016 @powdahound Rebuild

I was sick of comparing EC2 instance metrics and pricing on Amazon's site so I made this. Improvements welcome!

Project status

I'm actively maintaining the site with the help of contributors here, but am not working on large new features.

People have suggested many neat ideas and feature requests but it remains unclear how long the site will be necessary. I've heard from teams at Amazon that they use the site internally and some have mentioned that that they might be building something similar. They certainly have access to better data.
