With the Amazon Transfer Family, you only pay for the protocols you have enabled for access to your server endpoint(s), and the amount of data transferred over each of the protocols, and the amount of data processed using Amazon Transfer Family Workflows. There are no upfront costs and no resources to manage yourself. You select the protocols, identity provider, and endpoint configuration to enable transfers over the chosen protocols. You are billed on an hourly basis for each of the protocols enabled to access your endpoint, until the time you delete it. You are also billed based on the amount of data (Gigabytes) uploaded and downloaded over SFTP/FTPS/FTP, the number of messages sent or received over AS2, or the amount of data processed using Amazon Transfer Family Decrypt Workflow. When using SFTP connectors to connect to remote SFTP servers, you are billed for the number of connector calls and the amount of data sent or retrieved.

1Every file that is processed using Decrypt workflow step is billed for a minimum of 1MB data processed. Price based on output file size. 

*** A connector call refers to using SFTP Connectors StartFileTransfer API to send or retrieve a file to or from a remote server. Each file path is billed as one connector call. A connector call also refers to using SFTP connectors StartDirectoryListing API command to list files from a directory in remote SFTP server. List sizes upto 1,000 items are included in one connector call. For lists containing more than 1,000 items, per call charge of ¥0.0069 will apply for every 1,000 items chunk rounded down to the nearest chunk. Connector calls to check for new files will count towards your costs, even if files are not available in the source system for transfer. With SFTP connectors, you do not pay Amazon Web Services Data Transfer fees – you only pay the fee listed above.

Pricing examples

Example 1: Single protocol use

Assume you set up your endpoint and enable it for SFTP access. You then configure 20 end users to access data stored in your Amazon S3 bucket over SFTP. In total, your users download 1 GB/day of data from your Amazon S3 bucket. We calculate your monthly Amazon Transfer Family costs using pricing in the Ningxia region as follows:

SFTP enabled on your endpoint: At ¥1.959 hourly rate, your monthly charge for SFTP is:

         ¥1.959 * 24 hours * 30 days = ¥1,410.48

SFTP data upload and download: At ¥0.2612/GB, your monthly charge for data uploads and downloads over SFTP is:

         ¥0.2612 * 1 GB * 30 days = ¥7.836

Adding the charges above, your total monthly bill for the Amazon Transfer Family would be:
