Resource plan

Description

Resource plan (Subscription Plan)

You can purchase a resource plan to offset the fees of billable items. The billable items include storage usage, index traffic, read and write traffic, requests, data transformation, data shipping, alert notification messages (text messages), and alert notification calls. You can purchase one resource plan to offset the fees of all Simple Log Service billable items.

Note

A resource plan provides the same quota for resource usage each month during the validity period. The quota in a resource plan is cleared at the end of each month and is reset at the start of the next month.

Resource plan (Subscription Plan)

You can use a resource plan to offset the fees of billable items. Resource plans that have a higher quota and a longer validity period can be more cost-effective. Simple Log Service measures your resource usage on a daily basis. If your resource usage does not exceed the monthly quota of your resource plan, Simple Log Service offsets the fees from your resource plan. A resource plan provides the same quota for resource usage each month during the validity period. If your resource usage exceeds the monthly quota of your resource plan, you are charged for the excess resource usage based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

Important
  • Before March 15, 2024, you can use a resource plan (Subscription Plan) to offset the fees of billable items only if your Logstore uses the pay-by-feature billing mode. Afterwards, you can use it to offset the fees of billable items regardless of whether your Logstore uses the pay-by-feature or pay-by-ingested data billing mode.

  • Simple Log Service provides yearly subscription options for resource plans. Resource plans for one year or longer provide savings based on the resource quota and duration. For more information about the prices of different resource plans, visit the buy page of Simple Log Service. The prices of billable items that use the pay-as-you-go billing method remain unchanged. The savings are realized only when you purchase resource plans (Subscription Plan) for one year or longer.

  • You must pay the fees of your resource plan when you purchase the resource plan. For example, if you purchase a 1-year and 100-CU/month resource plan, you must pay the fees on the day you purchase the resource plan.

Resource plans are measured in cost units (CUs).

  • Resource plans supports the pay-by-feature and pay-by-ingested-data billing modes.

  • The fee of each billable item is offset from a resource plan by using CUs. The number of CUs that are used to offset the fee of a billable item is consistent with the unit price of the billable item in the pay-as-you-go billing method. For example, the unit price of read and write traffic on Simple Log Service is USD 0.045 per GB based on the pay-as-you-go billing method. In a resource plan, 0.045 CUs are used to offset the fee of 1 GB of read and write traffic. The following tables describe the billing details of a resource plan.
