Multi-Account Strategy in AWS China

Multi-Account Strategy in AWS China

AWS China announced the availability of AWS Organizations in the Beijing and Ningxia regions in 2020.

Before we deep dive into the AWS Organizations service, I think it’s worth saying, that the AWS Global and AWS China accounts are completely separated. There is no direct connection between AWS Global and AWS China. Both regions of Beijing and Ningxia are not operated by AWS directly but by local service providers.

What is AWS Organizations?

AWS Organizations helps you centrally manage your environment as you grow and scale your workloads on AWS China. Whether you are a growing startup or a large enterprise, Organizations help you centrally manage billing, create new accounts, and categorize your accounts using tags.

What are the benefits?

AWS Organizations enables the following capabilities:

  • Consolidate billing across multiple AWS accounts in China
  • Management of AWS accounts in China
  • Automate AWS account creation in China
  • Attach tags to your accounts in China
  • Why is AWS Organizations so important?

    Multi-account environments are a security and compliance best practice. By isolating your workloads or applications into individual accounts, you can control access to specific workloads using accounts and manage all of your accounts using AWS Organizations.

    Why should I centrally manage costs and billing?

    You can use AWS Organizations to consolidate usage across all accounts in your organization into a single bill. Additionally, you can manage your tax settings across AWS China region accounts in your organization from a central Tax console, and gain insights into your AWS spending across your organization.

    When is AWS Organizations available in China?

    AWS Organizations is already released in China, so you can start using it now! AWS Organizations is available in the Beijing and the Ningxia regions.

    Only one thing before you start, you must first decide which of your AWS accounts in China will become the master account. You can either create a new AWS account or select an existing one.

    What are the requirements?

    Essentially there are only 2 requirements:

  • Having an AWS account in China
  • Having credentials to access the account
  • How much does AWS Organizations cost?

    AWS Organizations is free of charge.

    How can I create an AWS Organization in China?

    There are 4 ways to create an AWS Organization in China:

  • AWS China console (see demo below)
  • IaC (Terraform or AWS CloudFormation)
  • Demo Session

    In the following video, I show you how to easily create, configure and delete AWS Organizations in China:
