Posted on: Feb 16, 2016

AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Enterprise Edition), also referred to as “Microsoft AD” is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) region. AWS Directory Service for Microsoft AD, is powered by Windows Server 2012 R2. When you select and launch this directory type, it is created as a highly available pair of domain controllers connected to your virtual private cloud (VPC). The domain controllers run in different Availability Zones in a region of your choice. Host monitoring and recovery, data replication, snapshots, and software updates are automatically configured and managed for you. 

To learn more you can visit the AWS Directory Service documentation pages. If you are ready to get started, you can try the service as part of our free trial, which provides you 750 hours of free AWS Directory Service usage, which is enough to continuously run a single directory for a month.
