Amazon WorkSpaces users receive access to WorkDocs for no additional charge. This includes 50 GB of storage per WorkSpaces user. For a discounted rate, WorkSpaces user can be upgraded to use 1 TB of storage.

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.

If you need more than 1 TB of storage for your users, additional storage will be charged at the rates per GB below. As you store more data in WorkDocs, the cost per additional GB decreases.
