Simple AD quotas - Amazon Directory Service
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Simple AD quotas

Generally, you should not add more than 500 users to a Small Simple AD directory and no more than 5,000 users to a Large Simple AD directory. For more flexible scaling options and additional Active Directory features, consider using Amazon Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition) instead.

The following are the default quotas for Simple AD. Each quota is per Region unless otherwise noted.
