This topic describes the billing items, billing methods, pricing methods, and billing rules for components of Enterprise Distributed Application Service (EDAS).Important The system may send you notifications that you have overdue payments. When this occurs, please clear all overdue payments to avoid instances being released. Please note that your instances may be released at a system-selected time after the payment due date.

Notice
  • The billing of EDAS does not cover the costs of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) resources such as ECS. IaaS resources are billed based on specific IaaS products.
  • The system may send you notifications that you have overdue payments. When this occurs, please clear all overdue payments to avoid instances being released. Please note that your instances may be released at a system-selected time after the payment due date.

Billing items

Billing currency is USD and is charged on monthly basis.

EDAS is billed based on the number of instances where applications are deployed. The billing method varies depending on the types of clusters where applications are deployed.

  • In an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) cluster, only one application instance can be deployed on each ECS instance, so the number of application instances is the same as that of ECS instances.

    For example, if you deploy an application in an ECS cluster that has 10 ECS instances, then 10 application instances are billed.

  • In Kubernetes clusters, each pod is regarded as an application instance.

    For example, if you deploy an application in a Container Service Kubernetes cluster that has a total of 15 pods, then 15 application instances are billed.

Notice The system may send you notifications that you have overdue payments. When this occurs, please clear all overdue payments to avoid instances being released. Please note that your instances may be released at a system-selected time after the payment due date.
