Amazon has announced that starting October 2, Amazon GameLift will support per-second billing for game instances. Amazon GameLift is a managed service for deploying, operating, and scaling dedicated game servers for session-based multiplayer games, making it easier for developers to manage infrastructure, scale capacity to lower latency and cost, match players into game sessions, and defend from DDoS attacks.
All newly launched and already running Linux-based Amazon GameLift instances in all 14 AWS Regions will be billed per instance-second.
#1 Sorry for my English....
#2 I have a "little" problem with licence terms. I'm student with I think good idea of multiplayer shooter game. Something small, but funny and interesting. In Lumberyard terms is something like that: "If you are developing multiplayer game without your own servers you have to use Amazon's". Maybe if I'm selling game on Steam I can use their servers. It's like I have "own" servers for my game or is there any way to jump this term, or just develop this game in another game engine? For instance Cryngine 5, UE4.....

Q. Can my Lumberyard game connect to services like Steamworks, Xbox Live, PSN, Apple Game Center, Google Play Games, or console social services?Yes. Your game may read and write data to platform services and public third-party game services for player save state, identity, social graph, matchmaking, chat, notifications, achievements, leaderboards, advertising, player acquisition, in-game purchasing, analytics, and crash reporting.
I'm not sure but matchmaking is actually multiplayer.
