If the specifications of your Standard Edition instance cannot meet your business requirements, you can upgrade the instance from the Standard Edition to the Enterprise Platinum Edition in the Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ console. This way, you can use the exclusive services provided by the Enterprise Platinum Edition. After the upgrade, the billing method of the instance changes from pay-as-you-go to subscription. This topic describes the background information, prerequisites, usage notes, and procedure of upgrading an instance from the Standard Edition to the Enterprise Platinum Edition.

Enterprise Platinum Edition instances provide more exclusive services than Standard Edition instances. For more information about differences between these two editions in specifications, see Instance editions.
