After you create a pay-as-you-go instance, you can change the billing method of the instance to subscription.

Usage notes

Hologres allows you to change the billing method of pay-as-you-go instances to subscription in the Hologres console.

When you change the billing method of an instance, take note of the following items:
  • After you change the billing method of an instance, computing resources are no longer billed based on actual usage but based on the subscription billing method.
  • By default, after you change the billing method of an instance, the storage capacity of the instance is 0 GB. If data is stored in the instance, the stored data is charged based on the pay-as-you-go billing method. If you want the stored data to be charged based on the subscription billing method, you must purchase a storage plan.
  • You cannot change the billing method of a subscription Hologres instance to pay-as-you-go. After you change the billing method of a pay-as-you-go instance to subscription, you cannot change the billing method back to pay-as-you-go.
