[Alibaba Cloud] [ApsaraDB for RDS] [Some Instance Types of ApsaraDB for RDS Basic Edition Will No Longer Be Available for Purchase]

To enhance user experience and improve service performance, the architecture of ApsaraDB for RDS is upgraded and optimized recently. Consequently, some specifications of ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL and ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL instances with Basic Edition will be phased out. If the instance type that you want to purchase is in the list of the plan, we recommend that you select recommended RDS for PostgreSQL instances listed in the document with the same price as alternative, or select RDS for MySQL Serverless edition with up to 50% savings.

Effective Date: January 31, 2023 onward
Phased-out Specifications:
RDS for MySQL, Basic Edition, 1C1G, mysql.n1.micro.1
RDS for MySQL, Basic Edition, 1C2G, mysql.n2.small.1
RDS for PostgreSQL, all General-purpose specifications of Basic Edition, see documentation (https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/apsaradb-for-rds/latest/the-basic-specifications-of-pg-were-dropped) to find the full list.
