Billable item Billing formula
Cluster specifications
Note Cluster specifications refer to the specifications that you configure based on your business requirements.
  • Data nodes, Kibana nodes, dedicated master nodes, warm nodes, and client nodes support both the subscription and pay-as-you-go billing methods. The following formulas are used to calculate the fees of these nodes:
    • Subscription: Fees = Price of the specifications of a single node × Number of nodes × Subscription duration
    • Pay-as-you-go: Fees = Price of the specifications of a single node × Number of nodes × Usage duration
  • Elastic nodes support only the pay-as-you-go billing method, regardless of the billing method of your cluster. The following formula is used to calculate the fees of elastic nodes:

    Pay-as-you-go: Fees = Storage space per node × Number of nodes × Unit price of cloud disks × Usage duration

Storage space
  • Subscription: Fees = Storage space per node × Number of nodes × Unit price of cloud disks × Subscription duration
  • Pay-as-you-go: Fees = Storage space per node × Number of nodes × Unit price of cloud disks × Usage duration
