Free Tier

Directory Service Free Tier is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region operated by NWCD and Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet. The Directory Service 30-day limited free trial provides you with 1,500 hours of use across all your Directory Service managed directories during your first 30 days as a Directory Service customer.

Directory Sharing – Pricing

Amazon Web Services Managed Microsoft AD allows you to use a directory in one account and share it with multiple accounts and VPCs. There is an hourly sharing charge for each additional account to which you share a directory. There is no sharing charge for additional VPCs to which you share a directory, or for the account in which you install the directory. Enterprise Edition sharing and Standard Edition sharing charges for different regions are listed in pricing table below. Directory sharing does not qualify for free-trial.

30-day limited free trial

You can try Amazon Web Services Managed Microsoft AD and small AD Connector at no additional charge through the Directory Service 30-day limited free trial. The Directory Service 30-day limited free trial provides you with 1,500 instance hours of use across all your Directory Service managed directories during your first 30 days as a Directory Service customer. Amazon Web Services meters the Directory Service 30-day limited free-trial hours based on the type of managed directory and the number of domain controllers that you create.

Amazon Web Services Managed Microsoft AD

Amazon Web Services Managed Microsoft AD is offered in two editions to help you create a managed Active Directory that meets your organization’s needs. Both Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition can be used as your organization’s primary directory to manage users, devices, and computers. You also can use both editions to create resource forests and extend your on-premises AD to the Amazon Web Services Cloud. Resource forests use a trust relationship with your on-premises AD to enable you to access Amazon Web Services applications and resources with your on-premises AD credentials. In a resource forest model, users are managed in your on-premises AD and the resource forest is used to manage your Amazon Web Services resources. Both editions also support the creation of additional domain controller instances to improve the redundancy and performance of your managed directory.

Standard Edition

Amazon Web Services Microsoft AD (Standard Edition) is optimized to be a primary directory for small and midsize businesses with up to 5,000 employees. It provides you enough storage capacity to support up to 30,000* directory objects, such as users, groups, and computers.


Enterprise Edition

Amazon Web Services Microsoft AD (Enterprise Edition) is designed to support enterprise organizations with up to 500,000* directory objects.

Comparison Table  

  Standard Edition Enterprise Edition
Storage capacity available for directory objects 1 GB 17 GB
Total directory objects 30,000* 500,000*

*Upper limits are approximations. Your directory may support more or less directory objects depending on the size of your directory objects and the behavior and performance needs of your applications.  

Pricing Table

For each Amazon Web Services Managed Microsoft AD directory, Amazon Web Services creates the minimum two domain controllers automatically to provide high availability. You can scale out your managed directory by creating additional domain controllers to improve your managed directory performance and availability.

AD Connector

AD Connector is a proxy that enables you to use identities from your existing self-managed Microsoft Active Directory (AD) with compatible Amazon Web Services applications, such as Amazon WorkSpaces. You can also use AD Connector to join Amazon EC2 instances to your AD domain and manage these instances using your existing group policy objects. This makes it easier to deploy AD-aware applications on these Amazon EC2 instances and use your self-managed AD for user and group authorization.

Pricing table

Amazon Web Services charges for AD Connector are based on the size of your managed directory (small or large) and the number of hours that your managed directory is running. The hourly pricing includes two instances for high availability.

AD Connector Size China (Beijing) Hourly Price China (Ningxia) Hourly Price

Small

¥ 0.4609 ¥ 0.4107

Large

¥ 2.1075 ¥ 1.2117

Amazon WorkSpaces, Amazon WorkDocs, and Amazon WorkMail

If you use Amazon WorkSpaces, Amazon WorkDocs, or Amazon WorkMail (in regions where available) in conjunction with AD Connector, Amazon Web Services will not charge you for AD Connector, as long as you have active users of Amazon WorkSpaces, Amazon WorkDocs, or Amazon WorkMail. In order to qualify for free usage of AD Connector, you must have at least one active user for small directories each month and at least 100 active users for large directories each month. You can also pay for Amazon Web Services Managed Microsoft AD, and use it in conjunction with Amazon applications, such as Amazon WorkSpaces and Amazon WorkMail.
