Azure Site Recovery can help you protect important services by coordinating the automated replication and recovery of protected instances at a secondary location. There are three primary deployment options.
Azure Site Recovery is billed based on number of instances protected. Every instance that is protected with Azure Site Recovery is free for the first 31 days, as noted below.
|Price For First 31 days||Price After 31 Days|
|Azure Site Recovery to customer owned sites||Free||$16/month per instance protected|
|Azure Site Recovery to Azure||Free||$54/month per instance protected|

Azure Site Recovery is billed in units of the average daily number of instances you are protecting over a monthly period. For example, if you consistently protected 20 instances for the first half of the month and none for the second half of the month, the average daily number of protected instances would be 10 for that month.
Every instance that is protected with Azure Site Recovery is free for the first 31 days of protection. From the 32nd day onwards, protection for the instance is charged at the rates above.
Yes, it does not matter how long you have been using Azure Site Recovery. Every protected instance incurs no ASR charges for the first 31 days.
For example, if you have been protecting 10 instances for the last 6 months and you connect a 11th instance to Azure Site Recovery – there will be no ASR charges for the 11th instance for the first 31 days. The first 10 instances continue to incur ASR charges since they have been protected for more than 31 days.
Yes, even though Azure Site Recovery is free during the first 31 days of a protected instance, you might incur charges for Azure Storage, storage transactions and data transfer. A recovered VM might also incur Azure compute charges.
While using Site Recovery to Azure, you will incur charges for Storage, storage transactions and outbound data transfer. In addition to these charges if you are using Site Recovery to Azure against instances running on vSphere you will incur additional Azure compute charges to setup the master target and config servers.
