You are charged for the amount of backup storage used by an instance that exceeds the free quota provided by ApsaraDB for MongoDB. This topic describes how to view the backup storage.

Background information

Backup storage is the total storage used by full backups and log backups. The backup feature of ApsaraDB MongoDB is provided by Data Backup (DBS) and you are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis for the amount of backup storage that exceeds the free quota. For more information about billing rules, see the Pricing tab of the ApsaraDB for MongoDB product page.
The free quota:
  • Dedicated cloud disk instances: You are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis when your storage space exceeds 200% of the instance storage capacity.
  • Dedicated local disk instances: You are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis when your storage space exceeds 50% of the instance storage capacity.
