Alibaba Cloud Function Compute is a fully-managed event-driven compute service. It allows you to focus on writing and uploading code without the need to manage infrastructure such as servers. Function Compute provides compute resources, allowing you to run code more flexibly and reliably. In addition, you only need to pay for the resources that have been consumed when running the code. No fee is incurred if you do not run the code.


Billing methods

Alibaba Cloud Function Compute is billed on a Pay-As-You-Go basis. The fee consists of three parts and the Internet Traffic Fee is optional. Users are only charged for the Internet Traffic Fee when using the Internet to transfer function data.

Total Fee = Request Fee + Duration Fee + Public Network Traffic Fee (optional)

Free Tier

The free tier is shared by the primary account and subaccount.

Requests: The first one million calls per month are free of charge.

Duration: The first 400,000 GB-seconds per month are free of charge.

Note: Free calls and execution duration are automatically cleared at the beginning of each calendar month, rather than accrued to the next month.

Request Fee

The Request Fee indicates the total number of function calls.

Price: $0.2 / 1 million calls

Duration Fee

An execution duration starts when your codes begin to be run and end when the result is returned or execution is terminated. The measurement granularity is 100 milliseconds. The duration price depends on the memory size that you have allocated to functions.

Price: $0.00001668/GB-second

Note: The unit of duration fee is GB-second, which means that when the memory size is 1 GB, the duration is charged by the second. If your function memory size is 512 MB, the duration price is calculated as follows: $0.00001668/2 = $0.00000834/second. The duration measurement granularity is 100 milliseconds. Therefore, your execution duration is rounded up to a multiple of 100 milliseconds. For example, if your function execution duration is 1,010 milliseconds, the duration is measured as 1,100 milliseconds. Therefore, if the execution duration of a function with a 512 MB memory is 1,010 milliseconds, the execution duration fee is calculated as follows: (0.5 × 1.1) GB-second × $0.00001668/GB-second = $0.000009174.

Public Network Traffic Fee

If you have used the Internet to transfer the Function Compute data, the used Internet traffic is charged according to the Alibaba Cloud ECS Internet traffic price. For more price information, see the relevant documentation.
