Data transfer plans are easy to use and cost-effective. A data transfer plan takes effect immediately after you complete the payment. After a data transfer plan takes effect, it automatically offsets the fees for the following resources: Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances, elastic IP addresses (EIPs), Classic Load Balancer (CLB) instances, and EIP bandwidth plans that use IPv4 and billed on a pay-by-data-transfer basis.When a data transfer plan is exhausted or expires, it can no longer be used to offset data transfer fees.

Benefits

  • Cost-effective

    Data transfer plans can reduce the cost of resource usage in your services.

  • Wide service scope

    Data transfer plans can be used to offset the cost of data transfer generated by ECS instances, EIPs, CLB instances, and EIP bandwidth plans.

  • Ease of use

    After you purchase a data transfer plan, it automatically offsets the cost of data transfer generated by the corresponding services in multiple regions. You do not need to configure the data transfer plan. For more information, see Purchase a data transfer plan.

  • Centralized management

    You can learn the overall Internet data transfer based on the consumption of data transfer plans.
