micro 5 40 0.117
small 22 400 0.055
medium 35 800 0.039
large 56 1,600 0.024

Notes:

  • Backup plans provide different backup and recovery speeds. For more information about how to select backup plans.
  • The configuration fee is the subscription fee for a backup plan.
  • Backup data is the actual data that has been transmitted over the DBS server. Backup data is different from file data and is dependent on the database type, backup method, and backup granularity.
  • Storage data is the data that is stored in the storage system. Storage data is different from backup data and is dependent on the storage format of backup data and compression algorithm.
  • Free quota is the free backup data provided by the system monthly. Unused quota cannot be carried over to the following month.
  • Pay-as-you-go represents the rate at which additional backup data is charged after the free quota is exceeded.
  • There are currently no public network traffic fees.
  • Backup service fees consist of the configuration fee and data backup fee. For example, if a user is subscribed to a medium type backup plan and performs a full backup of 300 GB data weekly, the monthly total of backup data would be 1,200 GB. Since the medium backup plan provides an 800 GB/month free quota, the backup service fees would be 35 + (1200 - 800) * 0.039 = 50.6 USD.
