Sign Up for AWS Storage Gateway

To use AWS Storage Gateway, you need an AWS account that gives you access to all AWS resources, forums, support, and usage reports. You aren't charged for any of the services unless you use them. If you already have an AWS account, you can skip this step.

To sign up for AWS account

  1. Open, and then choose Create an AWS Account.


    If you previously signed in to the AWS Management Console using AWS account root user credentials, choose Sign in to a different account. If you previously signed in to the console using IAM credentials, choose Sign-in using root account credentials. Then choose Create a new AWS account.

  2. Follow the online instructions.

    Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call and entering a verification code using the phone keypad.
