With Amazon MQ, you pay only for what you use. There are no minimum fees or upfront commitments. You pay for the time your message broker instance runs, the storage you use monthly, and standard data transfer fees. It’s easy to get started with Amazon MQ for the first six months with the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region Free Tier.

Broker Pricing


Hourly instance usage

You pay for message broker usage on an hourly basis (billed at one second resolution), with varying fees depending on the size of the message broker instance and whether you choose a single-instance broker, 3-node cluster, or active/standby broker. 

Broker Storage Pricing


Monthly storage usage

Two types of broker storage are available for Amazon MQ for ActiveMQ – durability optimized using Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) and throughput optimized using Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS). Amazon MQ for RabbitMQ brokers all use Amazon EBS. With Amazon MQ you pay for the average amount of storage you use per month. This is calculated by adding up the GB used each hour and dividing by the number of hours in the month, resulting in a value in "GB-Months”.

Free Tier


Amount and duration

Amazon MQ is free to try. The Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region Free Tier includes up to 750 hours of a single-instance mq.t3.micro broker per month using either ActiveMQ or RabbitMQ. It also includes up to 5GB of durability optimized Amazon EFS storage per month for ActiveMQ and 20GB of Amazon EBS storage for RabbitMQ, for 6 months. New Amazon Web Services accounts receive six months of Amazon Web Services Free Tier access. See the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region Free Tier for details.
