Hosting your data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) can be a very inexpensive way to provide storage for your organisation. This solution is also not necessarily confined to the use case of having both desktops and profiles in AWS due to the caching mechanisms AWS provides.
Both FSLogix Profiles and FSLogix O365 products work in a very similar way. FSLogix Profiles will store your local profile inside a VHD(X) and roam that local profile with the user and FSLogix O365 will store all your office data, (ost file, index, onedrive, onenote and S4B GAL) inside a VHD(X) and roam that with the user. From now on I’ll just talk about placing the VHD, as the solution is configured consistently across both products.
S3 is Amazons object storage and is much cheaper than the equivalent Elastic Block storage by GB. A reasonable rule of thumb would be that S3 is 4-5 times cheaper than EBS, although you should price out your requirements fully if you are interested in the comparisons.
