If the specifications of your Standard Edition instance are insufficient to meet your business requirements, you can upgrade the instance to Enterprise Platinum Edition in the Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ console. Then, you can use the features that are provided by Enterprise Platinum Edition. After the upgrade, the billing method of the instance changes from pay-as-you-go to subscription. This topic describes the background information, prerequisites, usage notes, and procedure for upgrading an instance from Standard Edition to Enterprise Platinum Edition.

Background information

Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ provides Standard Edition instances and Enterprise Platinum Edition instances. These two types of instances use different billing methods.
  • Standard Edition instances use the pay-as-you-go billing method.
  • Enterprise Platinum Edition instances use the subscription billing method.

Enterprise Platinum Edition instances provide more features than Standard Edition instances. For more information about the differences between these two editions, see Instance editions.

Prerequisites

The Standard Edition instance that you want to upgrade is in the Running state.

Usage notes

  • When you upgrade an instance from Standard Edition to Enterprise Platinum Edition, the ID and endpoints of the instance are not changed. The continuity of your business on these instances is not affected during the upgrade process.
  • After you upgrade an instance from Standard Edition to Enterprise Platinum Edition, you cannot manually downgrade the instance to Standard Edition. If you set Post-release Action to Change to Standard Edition After Release for the Enterprise Platinum Edition instance, the instance is downgraded to Standard Edition after the instance expires, and the billing method is changed to pay-as-you-go. For more information, see Configure the post-release action for an instance.
