With Amazon AppStream 2.0, you pay only for the streaming resources that you use, and a small monthly fee per authorized user. There is no upfront investment, and no long term commitment when using Amazon AppStream 2.0.

Fleets 

AppStream 2.0 Fleet instances are charged hourly. The instance charge includes compute, storage, and bandwidth that is consumed by the streaming protocol. With Always-On fleets, all instances that are running are charged the running instance fees based on the instance type and size, even if no users are connected. With On-Demand fleets, instances that are being used for streaming are charged the running instance fees based on the instance type and size. Instances in an On-Demand fleet that are stopped and don’t have an active streaming connection are charged a small hourly fee that is the same for all instance types and sizes.

Image Builders

AppStream 2.0 Image Builders are charged hourly. The Image Builder charge includes compute, storage, and bandwidth that is consumed by the streaming protocol. All Image Builders that are running are charged the running instance fees even if no administrators are connected.

User Charges

User fees are charged per user per month in each AWS Region where they connect to Amazon AppStream 2.0 fleet instances, and are not pro-rated. The user fee covers the Microsoft Remote Desktop Services Subscriber Access License (RDS SAL). User fees are not incurred for administrators connecting to and using an Image Builder for creating images for their fleet.

Free Tier

The Amazon AppStream 2.0 Free Tier allows you to use the stream.standard.large instance type for free for up to 40 hours per month when using Image Builder. This benefit is available for 2 months following your AWS sign-up date. Image Builder allows you to easily import, install, test, and update your applications for streaming using AppStream 2.0.

User Fees

* Hourly pricing fee charged for running instances only. For Image Builder and Always-On fleets, instances may be considered running if they are available for use, even if no user is connected. For On-Demand fleets, instances are considered running only if users are connected with an active streaming session.

For each authorized end user in an AWS Region accessing applications on your fleet instances, you will be charged a Microsoft RDS SAL fee of $4.19 / user / month. Schools, universities, and public institutions, may qualify for a reduced Microsoft RDS SAL user fee of $0.44 / user / month. Please reference the Microsoft Licensing Terms and Documents for qualification requirements. If you think you may qualify, please contact us. We will review your information and work with you to reduce your Microsoft RDS SAL fee. This fee is charged in full and is not pro-rated, regardless of when a user first accesses your applications in that month. This fee is not applicable when using Image Builder.

If you have Microsoft License Mobility, you may be eligible to bring your own Microsoft RDS CAL licenses and use them with Amazon AppStream 2.0. For users covered by your own licenses, you won’t incur the monthly user fees. For more information about using your existing Microsoft RDS CAL licenses with Amazon AppStream 2.0, please visit this page, or consult with your Microsoft representative.
