Microsoft has reduced the prices for a range of Azure services when purchased directly through the official Azure site. If you are a customer with enterprise agreements then you will continue to enjoy low prices.
The price of Azure backup service has been reduced to $.20/GB per month instead of the current $.28/GB per month. While the revised price of BizTalk Server Enterprise is $2.10/hour, BizTalk Server Standard is priced at $.48/hour.
The price of cache basic has been fixed at $18/month prorated hourly. On the other hand, the cost of cache premium has been set at $290/month prorated hourly. While the cost of CDN (Zone 1) 0–10 TB is fixed at $.97/GB, price of CDN (Zone 2) 0–10 TB will fetch $.138/GB.
You need to shell out $139.99/unit per month for premium edition of scheduler. However, the standard version will cost $13.99/unit per month when compared to existing $20/unit per month.
“With these changes, we are making it more cost effective to build complete solutions on Azure to leverage the full breadth of our technologies.” said Claire Fang, Director, Azure Business Planning.
