Amazon FSx for Windows File Server, a service that provides fully managed native Microsoft Windows file systems, now provides a new option for integrating Windows file systems with your organization’s user and group identities: you can now directly join your Amazon FSx file systems to on-premises or in-cloud self-managed Microsoft Active Directories (ADs).

With this feature, Amazon FSx now offers multiple ways to join your file systems to a Microsoft Active Directory. Support for self-managed ADs complements existing support for joining your file systems to a fully-managed AWS Managed AD.

Support for self-managed ADs is now available at no additional cost for all new file systems in all regions where Amazon FSx is available. To learn more about Amazon FSx for Windows File Server visit here. To learn more about this new feature visit here.
