How Will My Resource Packages Be Used To Pay for Cloud Services?

Packages are used to pay for your cloud services in the following order of priority: specified enterprise project resource packages -> resource packages with restrictions -> free packages -> subscribed resource packages.

  • Specified enterprise project resource packages

    When purchasing a resource package, customers who have enabled enterprise projects can assign a resource package to a particular project. Resource package quotas for specific projects are applied before quota not assigned to a specific project.

  • Resource packages with restrictions

    Resource packages may have certain usage restrictions, for instance, they are only valid for certain regions or specifications.

    • Regions

      For example, if you set the region to CN North-Beijing1 when purchasing a cloud product, only resource packages in the CN North-Beijing1 region can be used. Or when a cloud product is launched on HUAWEI CLOUD, if the region was restricted to CN North-Beijing1, only resource packages in the CN North-Beijing1 region can be used.

    • Specifications

      For example, you may have purchased an EVS resource package that is only valid for high I/O EVS disks. If that was the case, you cannot apply the quota of that package towards purchases of general purpose or ultra-high I/O EVS disks.

  • Free packages

    Eligible new customers often can take advantage of free packages, where they can enjoy a free quota of certain products after registering a new account and completing their account information.

  • Subscribed resource packages

    These are the regular resource packages that you purchase from the console.

Resource packages of the same type are used in the following order of priority: expiration time -> effective time -> subscription time.

  • Expiration time

    Resource packages that will expire first are used first. (You can view the effective time and expiration time of a resource package by going to Billing Center > Resource Packages.)

  • Effective time

    If two resource packages are scheduled to expire at the same time, the resource package that took effect first is used first.

  • Subscription time

    If two resource packages took effect at the same time and will also expire at the same time, the resource package that was purchased first is used first.
