In scenarios with sudden spikes in data transfer demands, Alibaba Cloud's CDT offers pay-as-you-go billing. This flexibility ensures you only pay for the data you transfer, avoiding unnecessary bandwidth reservations and aligning costs with actual usage.

Managing cloud expenses and budget planning can be complex, but CDT simplifies the process. It provides unified trend reports and bills for data transfers, enabling informed decision-making about cloud spending. This transparency helps allocate resources effectively and reconcile expenses, keeping you within your budget.

Alibaba Cloud's CDT supports a wide range of products, including Elastic IP, EIP Bandwidth Plan, Cloud Load Balancer IPv6 Gateway, Anycast EIP, Global Accelerator, Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) peering connections, offering versatility for various needs.

CDT goes beyond IT benefits; it enhances collaboration across your organization. With unified billing and tag-based bill splitting, business, IT, and financial teams can work efficiently. This streamlined approach ensures everyone is aligned on cloud expenses, enhancing cost management.
