Converting to be an annual customer
Converting to be an annual customer.
Upgrading to an annual subscription confers many benefits on the user, including savings over the hourly rate and Matillion ETL for Redshift 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
To upgrade your hourly subscription to an annual model, first browse to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Homepage. From the AWS site, browse to your Marketplace Software page at the top right of the page.
In the list of your current subscribed software, find Matillion ETL for Redshift. Click the 'Buy Annual Subscription' button.
You will be redirected to the subscription page for Matillion ETL for Redshift
Note: No changes on this page will be active until you confirm with 'Buy Annual Subscription'.
Since you already have an instance set up for Matillion ETL for Redshift, select the 'Manual Launch' tab. Click on the 'Annual' radio button on the left side and select the desired Instance Type. Multiple years can be purchased in advance with the 'Subscription Count' drop down menu. A drop down menu to the right will allow you to change the subscription prices to match your region.
The amount payable is automatically updated at the top right of the page under 'Price for your Selections".
Clicking the 'Buy Annual Subscription' button will replace your hourly subscription with the annual model - no need to separately deactivate the hourly subscription! Furthermore, your instances are automatically updated and do not require restarting.
Return to your Software Subscriptions page and you will see that you have a manual subscription pending which confirms the successful annual subscription to Matillion ETL for Redshift.
When the annual subscription eventually expires, your subscription will automatically revert to an hourly rate and this process can be repeated to renew the annual subscription.
