Membership

Your membership in a Hyperledger Fabric network is your identity (e.g. an organization) and enables you to participate in the network. The membership rate also includes a Hyperledger Fabric certificate authority (CA) for user management and other shared network costs. Additionally, you can create multiple network members in a given network (i.e., for test networks owned by a single AWS account).

    Membership Rate  $0.30 per hour

    The Amazon Managed Blockchain Starter Edition network is designed for test networks and small production networks. It has several different attributes than the Standard Edition: You can have a maximum of 5 members per network and 2 peer nodes per member. Available peer node types are bc.t3.small and bc.t3.medium. You can have up to 3 Hyperledger Fabric channels per network. The ordering service provisioned in a Starter Edition network is has lower transaction throughput and availability than that in a Standard Edition network.

    Membership Rate  $0.55 per hour

    The Amazon Managed Blockchain Standard Edition network is designed for production networks. It has several different attributes than the Starter Edition: You can have a maximum of 14 members per network and 3 peer nodes per member. The bc.t3, bc.m5, and bc.c5 instance families are available instance types for peer nodes. You can have up to 8 Hyperledger Fabric channels per network. The ordering service provisioned in a Standard Edition network is has higher transaction throughput and availability than that in a Starter Edition network

On-Demand peer node pricing

On-Demand pricing lets you pay per second for the blockchain peer nodes you create, with a 1-minute minimum. This frees you from the cost and complexity of planning and purchasing up-front peer node capacity ahead of your needs.

Peer node storage

Peer node storage elastically scales for storing the blockchain ledger and chaincode applications. Peer node storage is charged in GB-month increments.

Storage Rate
$0.10 per GB-month

Except as otherwise noted, our prices are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. For customers with a Japanese billing address, use of AWS is subject to Japanese Consumption Tax.

Data written

Data Written is the amount of data you (e.g. your membership) have written to the Hyperledger Fabric network. This includes the entire payload size of each transaction you create on the network.

Data Written Rate $0.10 per GB

Standard AWS data transfer charges

You need to pay standard AWS data transfer charges for the data transferred in and out of Amazon Managed Blockchain.

Pricing examples

Consider an Amazon Managed Blockchain test network owned by a single customer. This network has two Starter Edition members to simulate a multi-party transaction. Each member has a single bc.t3.small peer node with 20 GiB of storage and writes 9 MB to the network per hour.

The hourly cost for this network is:

Membership cost: (2 Starter Edition members) x ($0.30 per hour) x (1 hour) = $0.60 per hour

Peer node cost: (2 members) x (1 bc.t3.small peer node per member) x (0.034 per hour) x (1 hour) = $0.068 per hour

Peer node storage cost: (2 members) x (1 peer node per member) x (20 GiB storage per peer node) x ($0.10 per GB-month) x (1 hour) = $0.006 per hour

Data written cost: (2 members) x (9 MB per hour) x (0.10 per GB) = $0.002 per hour

Total test network hourly cost: $0.676

Consider an Amazon Managed Blockchain network with members from multiple AWS accounts. In this example, we'll calculate the hourly cost for a single Standard Edition member in the network. This member has a two bc.m5.2xlarge peer nodes for high availability and performance, and each peer node has 500 GiB of storage.

The hourly cost for this network is:

Network member cost: (1 Standard Edition member) x ($0.55 per hour) x (1 hour) = $0.55 per hour

Peer node cost: (1 member) x (2 m5.2xlarge peer nodes per member) x (0.615 per hour) x (1 hour) = $1.23 per hour

Peer node storage cost: (1 member) x (2 peer node per member) x (500 GiB storage per peer node) x ($0.10 per GB-month) x (1 hour) = $0.139 per hour

Data written cost: (1 member) x (100 MB per hour) x (0.10 per GB) = $0.01 per hour

Total production network hourly cost: $1.93
