When you use Database Backup to back up data, Database Backup (DBS) charges you based on based on the size and storage duration of the data stored in DBS.

You can pay storage fees on a pay-as-you-go basis or purchase storage plans (subscription). This topic describes the billing methods and pricing for backup storage.

Pay-as-you-go

You do not need to specify the storage capacity when you purchase a backup schedule. The storage capacity is automatically increased when the amount of data increases. You are charged for the amount of storage space that you use.

Storage fees = Storage usage (GB) × Unit price per month/30 (days)/24 (hours).

Storage plan (subscription)

If you want to store a large amount of data, we recommend that you purchase storage plans to reduce storage costs. A storage plan is more cost-effective than the pay-as-you-go billing method.

You can purchase storage plans of the following validity periods: one month, six months, and one year. If storage plans are exhausted, fees incurred by extra storage are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis. For more information, see Use storage plans.
