Operations in Object Storage Service (OSS) are implemented by calling OSS API operations. Fees are calculated based on the number of API calls. If you want to access Cold Archive data, you must first restore the data. You are charged for data retrieval fees when you restore data.

Note This topic describes the billable items and billing methods of OSS. For more information about the price of billable items, see Object Storage Service pricing.

Billable items

OSS charges API fees based on the number of PUT and GET requests and retrieval for Cold Archive data.

The number of PUT requests
  • Billing rule: You are charged when you call OSS API operations to send PUT requests. For more information about PUT requests, see PUT requests.
    Note You are not charged for failed requests. Failed requests include requests for which the 4xx or 5xx status code is returned.
  • Billing cycle: You are billed on an hourly basis. The fees are automatically deducted from the balance of your Alibaba Cloud account. Bills are generally generated after a billing cycle ends. The time when bills are generated is determined by the system.
  • Pay-as-you-go: Calling fees = Actual calls × Unit price per 10,000 calls/10,000.
  • Resource plan: not supported

Data retrieval
  • Billing rule: Before you can access an object of the Cold Archive storage class, you must first restore the object. The amount of time required to restore a Cold Archive object depends on the data size and the specified restoration priority. You are charged for data retrieval when you restore a Cold Archive object.
    Data retrieval requests are divided into the following types based on different restoration priorities of Cold Archive data:
    • Standard (CAStdRetrievalData)
    • Expedited (CAHighPriorRetrievalRequest)
    • Bulk (CABuikRetrievalRequest)
  • Billing cycle: You are billed on an hourly basis. The fees are automatically deducted from the balance of your Alibaba Cloud account. Bills are generally generated after a billing cycle ends. The time when bills are generated is determined by the system.
  • Pay-as-you-go: Calling fees = Actual calls × Unit price per 10,000 calls/10,000.
  • Resource plan: not supported
