Amazon WorkDocs pricing for Amazon WorkSpaces customers

Amazon WorkDocs pricing for additional per user storage

Every user gets 1TB of storage included with their WorkDocs subscription. Additional storage can be purchased and allocated to users, and the pricing tier is determined by the total amount of additional WorkDocs storage allocated across all users in your account. You can use the WorkDocs Administration Dashboard to find out how much data you are consuming at any time. You can set limits on the amount of storage your users can use. If you need more than 1 TB of storage for your users, additional storage will be charged at the rates mentioned on Amazon S3 Pricing Page. As you store more data in WorkDocs, the cost per additional GB decreases. All WorkDocs features are available for all accounts.


Except as otherwise noted, our prices are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT, GST and applicable sales tax.
