I'm looking to move my data over to the cloud and after looking at several different cloud providers, particularly Amazon EC2, a ton of the quotes are based off of something called an instance-hour. Does anyone know what this means? Does a multi-processor instance figure into the calculation? I could really use some help. Thanks!

Thanks for coming to ITKE
Here is a link to a page that gives a very good definition: Can someone explain the concept of an “instance-hour” as used by cloud computing providers?
