    Supported billing modes

    Billing Mode Supported Engine Payment Mode Use Case
    Monthly subscription MySQL Prepaid. You need to pay the fees when creating an instance. It is more cost-effective in the long term for businesses with stable needs than pay-as-you-go billing. Moreover, the longer a service is purchased, the less it costs.
    Pay-as-you-go MySQL Postpaid. You can apply for resources for on-demand use and will be charged based on the actual usage of resources upon settlement. It is suitable for businesses that may fluctuate greatly and instantaneously. In this mode, instances can be released immediately after use to save costs.
    Serverless MySQL Postpaid. You can set the maximum and minimum computing power values as needed first, but you will be charged based on the actual usage of computing and storage resources upon settlement. It is suitable for business scenarios with low frequency and uncertain load such as development and testing.

    A serverless instance will start with the minimum CPU specification during initialization and will be downgraded if there are no requests in ten minutes after startup. Therefore, even if you don't use the instance after purchasing it, compute node fees will be charged for ten minutes.
