If you have been an network administrator or architect then you are used to building directories to store organized data in a hierarchically format. Most notably, user accounts. Well, AWS has a solution for us that helps us keep our tools of defining schemas, enforce policies, and store objects in directories.
AWS has launched “Cloud Directory”. “This service is purpose-built for storing large amounts of strongly typed hierarchical data. With the ability to scale to hundreds of millions of objects while remaining cost-effective, Cloud Directory is a great fit for all sorts of cloud and mobile applications.”
Cloud Directory is available now in the US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions.
Pricing is based on three factors: the amount of data that you store, the number of reads, and the number of writes (these prices are for US East (Northern Virginia)):
Storage – $0.25 / GB / month
Reads – $0.0040 for every 10,000 reads
Writes – $0.0043 for every 1,000 writes
