Billing calculation for service level changes

If you change the service level in the middle of a billing cycle, your costs are prorated based on the usage time at each service level.

The following example assumes a 30-day billing cycle (730 hours) for a 50-TiB (51,200-GiB) volume that starts in Standard service level and transitions to Extreme service level:

Period Number of days Number of hours GiB-hours
(Capacity in GiB x hours)
GiB-months
(GiB-hours / hours in month)
Unit price Billing amount
1 15 365 18,688,000 25,600 $0.10 $2,560
2 15 365 18,688,000 25,600 $0.30 $7,680
1 month total 30 730 $10,240

Billing calculation for usage overage

If you consume more storage space than the capacity you selected for the volume, the following considerations apply:

  • You are billed for the additional storage capacity that you consume at the price defined by your service level.
  • The amount of storage bandwidth available to the volume does not increase until you increase the allocated capacity size or change the service level.

The following example assumes a 30-day billing cycle (730 hours) for a 50-TiB (51,200 GiB) allocated volume in Standard service level. The service level does not change during the cycle. However, the actual usage increases from 50 TiB to 60 TiB on day 15 (period 2 in the following table), and then to 80 TiB on day 21 (period 3 in the following table). For periods 2 and 3, the cost calculation is based on the actual usage and not the allocated size.

Period Volume size Number of days Number of hours GiB-hours
(Capacity in GiB x hours)
GiB-months
(GiB-Hours / hours in month)
Unit price Billing amount
1 50 14 340 17,408,000 23,847 $0.10 $2,385
2 60 8 195 11,980,800 16,412 $0.10 $1,641
3 80 8 195 15,974,400 21,883 $0.10 $2,188
1 month total 30 730 $6,214
