If a data migration or data synchronization task cannot meet your business requirements, you can upgrade the instance class of the task in the Data Transmission Service (DTS) console.

Prerequisites

  • The DTS task is in the Running, Paused, or Failed state.
  • The task is a data migration or data synchronization task. You do not need to configure instance class for change tracking tasks.

Billing

  • If the billing method is subscription,
    Task configuration fee = (Daily fee of the task after upgrade - Daily fee of the task before upgrade) × (Subscription expiration date - Upgrade date)
    Note The daily fee of a task after upgrade depends on the number of remaining days from the upgrade date to the expiration date.
    • If the number of remaining days is less than 300 days, the fee of the task after upgrade equals the fee offered by monthly subscription.
    • If the number of remaining days is greater than or equal to 300 days, the fee of the task after upgrade equals the fee offered by annual subscription.
  • If the billing method is pay-as-you-go,

    The task configuration fee is calculated based on the new instance class of the task. The billing rules remain unchanged. A bill is generated on an hourly basis.

Note For more information, see Pricing.
