ApsaraDB for Memcache supports the subscription and pay-as-you-go billing methods. You can change the billing method from pay-as-you-go to subscription. Both billing methods allow you to change the specifications of an instance.

Notes

  • During the specification changes, the instance may be disconnected for seconds. We recommend that you change specifications of an instance during off-peak hours. Make sure that your applications can automatically reconnect to the instance after disconnection.
  • After you change specifications, the instance is billed based on the new specifications.
