Overview

Pay only for what you use. There is no minimum fee.

Amazon Cloud Directory pricing is based on storage and access. Cloud Directory offers both eventually consistent and strongly consistent read options.

Free Tier

As part of AWS’s Free Tier, AWS customers can get started with Amazon Cloud Directory for free. New Cloud Directory customers get 1 GB of storage, 100,000 eventually consistent read API calls, and 10,000 combined strongly consistent read API calls and write API calls per month for the first 12 months. After 12 months, customers will be charged at normal rates per usage. Any excess usage during the 12-month free trial period is charged at normal rates.

Pricing Example1

Pay only for what you use. There is no minimum fee.

Amazon Cloud Directory pricing is based on storage and access. Cloud Directory offers both eventually consistent and strongly consistent read options.

If you are a new Amazon Cloud Directory customer, using Cloud Directory in the US East (Ohio) region, and allocate 10 GBs of storage to your application, and perform 1,000,000 eventually consistent read API calls, 20,000 strongly consistent read API calls, and 100,000 write API calls per month, your charges are calculated as follows:

   
First 12 months (qualifies for free tier)  
Free tier includes 1 GB of storage, 100,000 eventually consistent read API calls, and 10,000 combined strongly consistent read and write API calls per month.  

Monthly storage charges

$2.25

10 total GBs allocated – 1 free tier GB = 9 billable GBs

9 GB x $0.25 per GB = $2.25 per month

 

Monthly eventually consistent read API call charges

$0.44

1,000,000 total API calls – 100,000 free tier API calls = 900,000 billable API calls

900,000 API calls x $0.0049 per 10,000 API calls = $0.44 per month

 

Monthly strongly consistent read API call and write API call charges

$0.58

20,000 read API calls + 100,000 write API calls = 120,000 total API calls

120,000 total API calls – 10,000 free tier API calls = 110,000 billable API calls

110,000 API calls x $0.0053 per 1,000 API calls = $0.58 per month

 
Total monthly charge $3.27
   

After 12 months (not eligible for free tier)

 

Monthly storage charges

$2.50

10 GB x $0.25 per GB = $2.50 per month

 

Monthly eventually consistent read API call charges

$0.49

1,000,000 API calls x $0.0049 per 10,000 API calls = $0.49 per month

 

Monthly strongly consistent read API call and write API call charges

$0.64

100,000 read API calls + 20,000 write API calls = 120,000 billable API calls

120,000 API calls x $0.0053 per 1,000 API calls = $0.64 per month

 
Total monthly charge $3.63

Pricing Example 2

If you are a new Amazon Cloud Directory customer, using Cloud Directory in the US East (Ohio) region, and allocate 5 GBs of storage to your application, and perform 500,000 eventually consistent read API calls, 2,000 strongly consistent read API calls, and 2,000 write API calls per month, your charges are calculated as follows:

   
First 12 months (qualifies for free tier)  
Free tier includes 1 GB of storage, 100,000 eventually consistent read API calls, and 10,000 combined strongly consistent read and write API calls per month.  

Monthly storage charges

$1.00

5 total GBs allocated – 1 free tier GB = 4 billable GBs

4 GB x $0.25 per GB = $1.00 per month

 

Monthly eventually consistent read API call charges

$0.20

500,000 total API calls – 100,000 free tier API calls = 400,000 billable API calls

400,000 API calls x $0.0049 per 10,000 API calls = $0.20 per month

 

Monthly strongly consistent read API call and write API call charges

$0.00

2,000 read API calls + 2,000 write API calls = 4,000 total API calls

4,000 total API calls – 10,000 free tier API calls = 0 billable API calls

You do not incur any strongly consistent read API call and write API call charges for the first 12 months. Unused API calls do not roll-over to subsequent months.

 
Total monthly charge

$1.20

   

After 12 months (not eligible for free tier)

 

Monthly storage charges

$1.25

5 GB x $0.25 per GB = $1.25 per month

 

Monthly eventually consistent read API call charges

$0.25

500,000 API calls x $0.0049 per 10,000 API calls = $0.25 per month

 

Monthly strongly consistent read API call and write API call charges

$0.02

2,000 read API calls + 2,000 write API calls = 4,000 billable API calls

4,000 API calls x $0.0053 per 1,000 API calls = $0.02 per month

 
Total monthly charge $1.52

Monthly strongly consistent read API call and write API call charges

$0.08

20,000 read API calls + 5,000 write API calls = 25,000 total API calls

25,000 total API calls – 10,000 free tier API calls = 15,000 billable API calls

15,000 API calls x $0.0053 per 1,000 API calls = $0.08 per month

 
Total monthly charge
