Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes.

Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using Thomson Reuters benchmark rates refreshed on the first day of each calendar month.

Contact an Azure sales specialist for more information on pricing or to request a price quote. See frequently asked questions about Azure pricing.
