Table 1 Global Accelerator pricing details

Billing Item

Description

Price

Global accelerators

You are charged based on how long each global accelerator is retained in your account.

The smallest billing unit is one hour. Partial hours are counted as full hours.

Global accelerator price = Unit price x Required duration

$0.356 USD/hour

Data transfer

You are charged for either the inbound or outbound traffic, whichever direction has more traffic.

Data transfer price = Unit price x Traffic used

For details, see "Specifications Price" in Global Accelerator Pricing Details.

NOTE:
  • If an EIP is added as an endpoint, the traffic will not be repeatedly billed.
  • See Acceleration Area for available acceleration areas.
  • The regions where an endpoint group can be deployed are those you can select on the Global Accelerator console.

Billing Examples

Suppose you have an application deployed in Guangzhou, if you want end users in Hong Kong and the Philippines to be able to access your application faster, you need a global accelerator.

  • If end users in Hong Kong access your application, inbound traffic to your application is 1 GB and outbound traffic from your application is 20 GB, you are only charged for the 20 GB of outbound traffic but not the 1 GB of inbound traffic.
  • Similarly, if end users in the Philippines access your application, inbound traffic to your application is 1 GB and outbound traffic from your application is 5 GB, you are only charged for the 5 GB of outbound traffic.

The total price for using this global accelerator for an hour can be calculated using the following formula: Global accelerator price + Data transfer price = $0.356 USD/hour x 1 hour +1.098 x 20 GB + 1.098 x 5 GB = $27.806 USD
