Managed Microsoft AD allows you to deploy domain controllers to multiple regions. The authorized network can have a presence in any number of regions, but only the number of regions where domain controllers are deployed factor into pricing calculations.

Domain deployed in multiple regions

$0.40 * 2 regions * 24 hours * 30 days = $576.00

It simplifies future AD-dependent infrastructure deployments. It also eliminates the overhead associated with managing multiple AD domain-specific Security Identifier prefixes.
