Now, Amazon Cloud Directory makes it easier for you to develop applications faster with the Managed Schema. Instead of defining and setting up your own schema, you can now use the Managed Schema to create a directory and start creating and retrieving objects immediately.

The Managed Schema highlights two new Cloud Directory features, a dynamic facet style and a flexible data type called variant. You can easily create objects with any number of attributes and of any data type using dynamic facet. When you create any attribute using a dynamic facet, it is created as variant data type.

There is no additional charge to use Cloud Directory Managed Schema, dynamic facet or variant data type. Cloud Directory is available in the US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt) and EU (London) Regions.
