TiDB Cloud charges according to the resources that you consume, which include:

Node Cost

Node Compute Cost

TiDB Cloud lets you pay for database cluster compute resources by minutes, which is ideal for dynamic workloads.
In TiDB Cloud, you can control your cluster size easily by specifying the node quantity and vCPUs size of TiDB, TiKV, and TiFlash.
The specified node quantity and associated vCPUs determine your hourly compute cost.
Note that the compute cost of TiDB, TiKV, and TiFlash nodes might vary depending on different cloud providers and different regions.

Node Storage Cost

Both TiKV and TiFlash nodes persist your data to disks. Each disk will be charged for its different storage size. For AWS clusters, each disk will be charged for IOPS and throughput fees, and the cost varies by the number of vCPU.

  • For AWS clusters: Node Storage Cost(per hour) = Storage size cost(per GiB/hour) * storage size(GiB) + IOPS and throughput fee(per hour)
  • For GCP clusters: Node Storage Cost(per hour) = Storage size cost(per GiB/hour) * storage size(GiB)
  • Storage size is calculated in gigabytes (GiB), where 1 GiB = 2^30 bytes.

Data Backup Cost

TiDB Cloud provides automatic backup, ad-hoc backup, and continuous changed data log backup. These backups consume cloud storage. We will charge you based on the maximum capacity of total backups per month.

In addition, TiDB Cloud supports storing the same backup data in multiple regions. You will be charged for multiple backup storage and inter-region backup data replication out from the cluster region to each destination region. The cost is on a per-region basis and varies with the backup regions selected.

Data Transfer Cost

Both AWS and GCP might charge for data transfer, calculated per GB, whenever data moves within or leaves its cloud. Examples of when these charges are incurred with TiDB Cloud include the following:

  • When your application reads from TiDB Cloud database
  • When data moves between the TiDB cluster load balancer and your cluster
  • When data moves across different availability zones in the same region within your cluster
  • When you perform cluster backup and recovery operations
  • When you use Data Migration to migrate data to your cluster
  • When you use Changefeed to stream data to or from your cluster
  • Fixed cost of the load balancer

TiDB Cloud passes these charges onto customers as they are incurred, calculated using the published AWS and GCP price tables as applicable, and without any additional fees.
This cost policy applies to all TiDB Cloud customers with Dedicated Tier clusters, regardless of how those clusters are licensed.
To make these charges easier to view, your TiDB Cloud bills and invoices aggregate and organize all data transfer charges under the following categories:

  • Data Transfer – AWS Same Region
  • Data Transfer – AWS Cross Region
  • Data Transfer – AWS Internet
  • Data Transfer – AWS Load Balancing
  • Data Transfer – GCP Same Region
  • Data Transfer – GCP Cross Region
  • Data Transfer – GCP Internet
  • Data Transfer – GCP Load Balancing

 

Changefeed Cost

TiDB Cloud measures the capacity of changefeeds in TiCDC Replication Capacity Units (RCUs). When you create the first changefeed for a cluster, TiDB Cloud automatically sets up TiCDC RCUs for you, and you will be charged for these TiCDC RCUs.

The following table lists the price of TiDB Cloud for each TiCDC RCUs:

Cloud provider Region RCU price ($/hr)
AWS Oregon (us-west-2) $0.1307
AWS N. Virginia (us-east-1) $0.1307
AWS Mumbai (ap-south-1) $0.1393
AWS Singapore (ap-southeast-1) $0.1623
AWS Seoul (ap-northeast-2) $0.1588
AWS Tokyo (ap-northeast-1) $0.1669
AWS Frankfurt (eu-central-1) $0.1564
GCP Oregon (us-west1) $0.1452
GCP N. Virginia (us-east4) $0.1626
GCP Iowa (us-central1) $0.1452
GCP Singapore (asia-southeast1) $0.1746
GCP Taiwan (asia-east1) $0.1628
GCP Tokyo (asia-northeast1) $0.1868
GCP Osaka (asia-northeast2) $0.1868

Data Migration Cost

TiDB Cloud measures the capacity of Data Migration in Replication Capacity Units (RCUs). When you create a Data Migration job, you can select an appropriate specification. The higher the RCU, the better the migration performance. You will be charged for these Data Migration RCUs.

The following table lists the price of TiDB Cloud for each Data Migration RCU:

Cloud provider Region RCU price ($/hr)
AWS Oregon (us-west-2) $0.1307
AWS N. Virginia (us-east-1) $0.1307
AWS Mumbai (ap-south-1) $0.1393
AWS Singapore (ap-southeast-1) $0.1623
AWS Seoul (ap-northeast-2) $0.1588
AWS Tokyo (ap-northeast-1) $0.1669
AWS Frankfurt (eu-central-1) $0.1564

Database Import Cost

There are no additional charges for use of data import.
You will be charged by AWS or GCP for the outgoing data transfer.
