Adding Replicas to Multi-AZ Deployed Instance

Last updated: 2022-09-26 16:23:52


    A multi-AZ deployed instance uses the one-replica architecture by default. One master node and two replica nodes are recommended, with the master node and one replica node deployed in the master AZ and the other replica node deployed in the replica AZ. This deployment mode maximizes the service availability and greatly reduces the delay caused by failures of the master node. If the master node fails, the replica node in the master AZ can be first elected as the new master node, ensuring that the access latency in the master AZ will not be affected by the switch of the master node to the replica AZ otherwise. For more information, see Multi-AZ Deployment. We recommend you select the number of replicas based on your business needs.

    Billing Description

    • Pay-as-you-go: The instance will be billed based on the new specification on the next hour under tier 1, and fees will be settled on each hour. For pricing details, see Pricing.


    • If the number of replicas is increased, the instance will be charged at the price of the new specification.
    • Increasing the number of replicas will not cause momentary disconnections or command execution failures or affect existing connections.
