You can release a pay-as-you-go instance at any time.

Note You cannot delete or release a subscription instance.


  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for Redis console.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the top navigation bar, select the region where the target instance is located.
  3. On the Instance List page, find the target instance and click Release in the Action column.
    Warning Make sure you have backed up the instance if the data stored in it is still useful. To back up an instance, see Manual backup (instant backup).
