Charging Cases

Case Background

An enterprise has a large amount of video and audio data stored on OBS for backup. Suppose that this enterprise stores files of 1 TB to OBS over the Internet and has 15 million times of requests excluding the DELETE requests each month. The downstream traffic is 100 GB every month.


A storage pack of 1 TB contains a quota of free requests as follows:

  1. A total of 600,000 PUT, COPY, POST, and LIST requests
  2. A total of 2,400,000 GET and other requests

According to this case, the detailed bills can be calculated in the following two charging modes:

  • Pay-per-use
  • Monthly/Yearly subscription

In this case, the pricing is just an example and the calculated result is just an estimate. The pricing varies with the actual conditions. Therefore, the calculated results differ. The actual pricing is specific to the official website of cloud services.
