With eNlight, you get an assurance that you would be paying for what you use and not what is reserved for you. You have complete control to select the base configuration that you want and you'd be charged for the base configuration plus the additional resources you use during spikes. Thus, you don't end up paying for resources that you don't need during off-peak hours.
