Both subscription and pay-as-you-go are supported for AnalyticDB MySQL.

AnalyticDB MySQL supports the following billing methods.

Billing method Description
Subscription
  • The subscription method is a prepayment plan. You must pay an upfront subscription fee when you purchase a cluster.
  • We recommend that you use this billing method if you have long-term requirements because it is more cost-effective than the pay-as-you-go billing method. Larger discounts are offered for longer subscription periods.
  • You cannot change the billing method of a cluster from subscription to pay-as-you-go.
Pay-as-you-go
  • The pay-as-you-go method is a post-payment plan. The system generates a bill every hour and deducts the relevant amount from your account balance based on the cluster specifications.
  • Pay-as-you-go is applicable to scenarios where you have short-term requirements, such as testing. This is because you can immediately release the cluster to reduce costs after you use the cluster to fulfill the intention. After the resource usage becomes stable, you can log on to the AnalyticDB MySQL console. In the left-side navigation pane, click Clusters > V3.0 Clusters tab. Then, click Switch to Subscription Billing. This way, the billing method of a cluster is changed from pay-as-you-go to subscription.

Scenarios
  • Scenario 1

    In subscription mode, China (Hong Kong) is selected as the region. Four nodes are estimated to use for six months. You must pay the subscription amount of USD 16,279.2, which is calculated based on the expression: Subscription amount = 678.3 × 4 × 6 = USD 16,279.2.

  • Scenario 2

    In pay-as-you-go mode, Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) is selected as the region. Two nodes are estimated to use 1,000 GB of storage of hot data and 3,000 GB of storage of cold data space per hour for 10 days. You must pay the subscription amount of USD 836, which is calculated based on the expression: Subscription amount = 1.2326 × 2 × 24 × 10 + 0.000892 × 1,000 × 24 × 10 + 0.000042 × 3,000 × 24 × 10 = USD 836.

  • Scenario 3

    In subscription mode, US (Silicon Valley) is selected as the region. Six nodes are extimated to use for three months. Elastic computing resources are required for six nodes for 100 hours. You must pay the subscription amount of USD 9,568.5, which is calculated based on the expression: Subscription amount = 488.012 × 6 × 3 = USD 8,784.216. Pay-as-you-go amount = 1.307175 × 6 × 100 = USD 784.305. Total amount = 8,784.216+784.305 = USD 9,568.5.
