In addition, we are introducing new volume-based tiered pricing with even lower prices per metric, with savings up to 96%.

Customers with EC2 Detailed Monitoring enabled will also see a price reduction with per month charges reduced from 21.77 CNY per instance per month to 14 CNY or lower based on volume tier. Customers will continue to receive 10 free metrics per month as part of the free tier.
