With Amazon WorkSpaces, you pay only for what you use. You are charged based on the bundle type and the number of Amazon WorkSpaces you launch. There is no up-front commitment, and you can delete WorkSpaces at any time.

Monthly and Hourly Billing Options

Amazon WorkSpaces provides the flexibility to pay monthly or hourly. With monthly billing, you pay a fixed monthly fee for unlimited usage during the month, which is best for workers who use their Amazon WorkSpace full-time or as their primary desktop. With hourly billing you pay a small fixed monthly fee per WorkSpace to cover infrastructure costs and storage, and a low hourly rate for each hour the WorkSpace is used during the month. Hourly billing works best when Amazon WorkSpaces are used, on average, for less than a full working day or for just a few days a month, making it ideal for part-time workers, job sharing, road warriors, short-term projects, corporate training, and education.

You can mix monthly and hourly billing within your AWS account, and you can also switch between billing options at any time during a billing period to optimize your AWS bill.

Application Options

Amazon WorkSpaces come with a default set of applications at no additional cost. You can choose to add Plus application bundles, which include Microsoft Office Professional and Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security, to your Amazon WorkSpaces for an additional monthly fee. If you select Plus bundles, you’ll have the option to choose between Microsoft Office Professional 2013 and Microsoft Office Professional 2010.

Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager (WAM)
