How Can ECS Billing Be Stopped?

Updated at: Dec 16, 2019 GMT+08:00

If a pay-per-use product, such as an ECS or EVS disk is not required any more, delete it to stop billing.

However, this function does not apply to the ECSs using local storage (such as disk-intensive, H2, P1, and P2 ECSs) or FPGAs (such as FP1 or FP1C ECSs). Charges will continue to be incurred for the ECSs even after they are stopped. To stop billing such an ECS, delete it.

A product billed in yearly/monthly mode, such as an ECS or EVS disk, is paid when you purchase it. The billing automatically stops when the payment cycle expires. If you stop using the product before the payment cycle expires, the system does not refund.

This section uses a pay-per-use ECS to describe the impact on billing after the ECS is deleted. Table 1 lists the information of the ECS.
