This topic describes the billable items, billing methods, pricing methods, and billing rules for components of Enterprise Distributed Application Service (EDAS).
EDAS is billed based on the number of instances where applications are deployed. The billing method varies based on the types of clusters where applications are deployed.
- ECS cluster
In an ECS cluster, only one application can be deployed in each ECS instance. An ECS instance where an application is deployed is an application instance. Therefore, the number of application instances is the same as that of ECS instances where applications are deployed.
For example, if you deploy one application in an ECS cluster that has 10 ECS instances, 10 application instances are billed.
- Kubernetes cluster
In a Kubernetes cluster, each pod is regarded as one application instance.
For example, if you deploy one application in a Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) cluster that has a total of 15 pods, 15 application instances are billed.
- EDAS does not calculate the fees of pods or ECS instances, but manages a specific number of pods or ECS instances.
- In EDAS, you are charged for the largest number of application instances in a day. Fees are not rebilled when you restart ECS instances or pods.
