With the Amazon Transfer Family, you only pay for the protocols you have enabled for access to your endpoint, and the amount of data transferred over each of the protocols. 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 each of the protocols.

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:

        ¥1,410.48 + ¥7.836 = ¥1418.316

Example 2: Large user base with heavy use over multiple protocols

Assume you enable your endpoint for SFTP and FTPS and configure 1,000 end users to access data in your Amazon S3 bucket over any of the three protocols. Your users in total upload 100 GB/day of data and download 50 GB/day over SFTP, and upload 200 GB/day of data and download 100 GB/day over FTPS. 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 endpoint 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 is:

   ¥0.2612 * 100 GB * 30 days (uploads) + ¥0.2612 * 50 GB * 30 days (downloads) = ¥783.6+ ¥391.8 = ¥1175.6

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

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

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

    ¥0.2612 * 100 GB * 30 days (uploads) + ¥0.2612 * 100 GB * 30 days (downloads) = ¥783.6+ ¥783.6= ¥1567.2

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

    ¥1,410.48 + ¥1175.6 ¥1,410.48 + ¥1567.2 = ¥5,563.76.
