If you create Database Backup sandbox instances, DBS charges you for the creation and storage of the sandbox instances. This topic describes the billable items and pricing of the sandbox feature.
Database Backup (DBS) provides a complete sandbox solution for MySQL and Oracle databases based on copy data management (CDM). You can use the DBS sandbox feature to create a sandbox instance (ApsaraDB RDS emergency instance) to restore data in a backup set within seconds. Read and write operations performed within sandbox instances do not affect source databases. You can perform a variety of operations within sandbox instances, such as data restoration within seconds, recovery drill, test, analysis, and emergency disaster recovery. For more information, see Overview.

You are charged for the actual amount of data you use on an hourly basis.
