ApsaraDB for OceanBase:Billing for backup and recovery

Last Updated:Nov 02, 2022

This topic describes the billing for the backup and recovery feature of ApsaraDB for OceanBase. After you purchase an OceanBase cluster, a backup and recovery order is generated for you.

Billing description

The backup and recovery feature of ApsaraDB for OceanBase is for free. However, the backup files will occupy storage space, which is provided by Object Storage Service (OSS).

After you purchase an OceanBase cluster, a backup and recovery order is generated for you. If you are a subscription user, the backup and recovery order automatically ends after the cluster order ends. If you are a pay-as-you-go user, you can click Release behind your cluster to release the cluster as well as its backup and recovery order.

Backup space is divided into different parts to store data backups, log backups, remote data backups, and remote log backups.

  • The part for data backups and that for log backups have free quotas. When a free quota is used up, you will be charged based on the excess storage usage and retention period.

  • The part for remote data backups and that for remote log backups have no free quotas. You will be charged based on the storage usage and retention period. The charges for remote backup storage are higher than those for local backup storage because remote replication will occupy bandwidth resources.

The following tables describe the billing methods. For more information about expiring or overdue services, see Expiration or overdue payment.
