Re: Timing Makes Sense There's probably no limit on how small the units could be charged. How about per millisecond. With data running near the speed of light, I would guess the cloud companies could squeeze quite a profit out of smaller and smaller pricing units.

Re: Timing Makes Sense I wonder: Does the speed of billing mean that customers will pay more during high-usage times? It would seem that by the second would be more granular, therefore possibly costing more.

Timing Makes Sense With the speed that customers accesss and turn off AWS, the per-second billing makes sense. Wouldn't surprise me if a few years down the road we see billing on a tenth-of-a-second basis.
