Billing example

Assume that an Enterprise Edition user has 60 Alibaba Cloud ECS instances with the bandwidth of 60 Mbit/s. Compared with the default number of supported Alibaba Cloud ECS instances and default bandwidth, the user uses 10 additional ECS instances and 10 Mbit/s increased bandwidth. If this user subscribes to the Cloud Firewall service for six months, the total service fee is USD 9,858, which is calculated in the formula: (1,450 + 10 × 3.8 + 10 × 15.5) × 6.
