Starting today, Amazon RDS for SQL Server supports SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) directly on RDS DB instances. You can run SSAS in the Tabular mode. There is no additional cost to install SSAS directly on your Amazon RDS DB instance. 

If you are currently running SSAS on Amazon EC2, you can now save costs by running SSAS directly on the same RDS DB instance as your SQL Server database. SSAS is currently available on Amazon RDS for SQL Server 2016 and SQL Server 2017 in the single-AZ configuration on both the Standard and Enterprise editions. 

Learn more about how to configure SSAS in RDS from this Blog post, and see the Amazon Relational Database Services User Guide for more information. 

Amazon RDS for SQL Server makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale SQL Server deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for SQL Server Pricing for pricing details and regional availability.
