ApsaraDB for Memcache:Create instances

Last Updated:May 19, 2022

ApsaraDB for Memcache supports subscription and Pay-As-You-Go payment models. Pay-As-You-Go can be upgraded to the subscription model, but not vice versa. You can choose your preferred payment method based on your needs. Next is an introduction to the purchase procedure.


  • The instance is billed immediately after it is activated, whether used or not. So we recommend that you apply for it as required to avoid unnecessary expenditure.

  • At least one ECS is required for activating ApsaraDB for Memcache.


  1. Log on to the Memcache console, and click Create Instance at the upper right.

  2. Select Region, Zone, Instance Class, and set the instance Password, Instance Name and Quantity.


    • ApsaraDB for Memcache only allows intranet access. We recommend you set the zone of ApsaraDB for Memcache to be the same zone in the same region as the ECS.

    • If you want postpaid instances, select Pay-As-You-Go. Other items are basically the same as for subscription instances.

    • We recommend that you set a password for cloud instance access when purchasing the instance. If no password is set, you must reset the password in Instance List>Manage>Change Password.

  3. Click Purchase Now after the selection and enter the Confirm Order page. Confirm the order information and click the Pay button.

  4. Enter the payment page, select the billing method and click Confirm Payment.

    A prompt is displayed after successful payment. Go to the console after one to five minutes and check the instance you just purchased.
