virtual machine reservations cost - should be displayed together with per hour cost
On the pages showing VM sizes with prices per month, it would be super useful to show 1-3 years reservations costs.
There will be a lot of price transparency introduced which is a good thing for a business wanting look reputable;
There will be more incentive for people to go reserved instances.
Currently, the cost of VM per hour is not aligned with cost of VM for reservation. Whoever chooses regions for deployment based on per hour cost with a plan to transition to reserved instances later might be in for a nasty surprise realizing that other regions provide more efficient long term options. For example, currently West US 2, East US 2 are cheap for per hour, but South Central is 20% cheaper for reserved instances.
correction:... but North Central is 20% cheaper for reserved instances.
