This topic describes the regions that MaxCompute is available in, MaxCompute connection methods, and issues arising from use with other Alibaba Cloud services such as ECS, Table Store, and OSS.



MaxCompute provides two types of endpoints:
  • MaxCompute endpoint: All requests except for upload and download requests can be sent to MaxCompute. For example, you can send a request to create a table, delete a function, or create a job.
  • MaxCompute Tunnel endpoint: The MaxCompute Tunnel endpoint is used to upload and download data. To upload and download data through MaxCompute Tunnel, you can initiate a request through the MaxCompute Tunnel endpoint.
    Note
    • MaxCompute Tunnel downloads are charged differently in each region due to different deployments and network connection states for MaxCompute Tunnel.
    • If your Tunnel endpoint needs to connect over the internal network, you must configure an internal MaxCompute endpoint. Otherwise, traffic may be routed to the public network and you may be charged for downloads over the public network.

Connection methods and billing rules for data download

You can access MaxCompute and MaxCompute Tunnel through the following connection methods:
  • Public network
  • Alibaba Cloud classic network
  • Alibaba Cloud VPC
Note You only need to specify a network when you want to connect to a project. You do not need to specify a network when you create a project.

Data uploads

Uploading data through MaxCompute Tunnel is free of charge regardless of which connection method is used, as shown in the preceding figure.

Data downloads

The billing rules for downloading data through MaxCompute Tunnel depend on whether the source and destination are in the same region:
  • If the source and destination are in the same region, downloading data through MaxCompute Tunnel is free of charge over both the classic network and VPC.
  • If the source and destination are not in the same region or do not meet the requirements for the same region access, downloading data through MaxCompute Tunnel over the public network is billed.
    Note Because the MaxCompute Tunnel deployment and network connection status in every region are different, we cannot guarantee permanent connectivity for MaxCompute Tunnel if you select the Alibaba Cloud classic network or VPC.

Connectivity configurations for accessing external tables

MaxCompute 2.0 supports reading and writing OSS data and Table Store data. For more information, see Access OSS unstructured data and Access Table Store unstructured data.

Connectivity configurations are as follows:
  • If MaxCompute is in the same region as Table Store or OSS, we recommend that you select the Alibaba Cloud classic network or VPC connection method. The public network can also be selected.
  • If MaxCompute is not in the same region as Table Store or OSS, we recommend that you select the public network connection method. We cannot guarantee permanent connectivity for MaxCompute Tunnel if MaxCompute is not in the same region as Table Store or OSS and you select the Alibaba Cloud classic network or VPC.
  • However, you can use a physical connection to access a VPC to guarantee MaxCompute Tunnel connectivity. For more information, see Access cloud services in VPC through physical connections.

Regions where MaxCompute is available and corresponding endpoints

MaxCompute is available in regions both inside and outside Mainland China. You can apply for data storage and computing in these regions.
Note Both HTTP and HTTPS are supported in public endpoints (aliyun). If you need to encrypt your requests, use HTTPS.

Note Scenarios that require you to configure the MaxCompute endpoint and Tunnel endpoint:

Access rules

  • In the regions where MaxCompute has been available, you can connect to MaxCompute over the public network, classic network, or VPC.
  • When you use the Tunnel endpoint to download data over the public network, the price is USD 0.1166/GB.
