Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes. Actual pricing may vary depending on the type of agreement entered with Microsoft, date of purchase, and the currency exchange rate. Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using London closing spot rates that are captured in the two business days prior to the last business day of the previous month end. If the two business days prior to the end of the month autumn on a bank holiday in major markets, the rate setting day is generally the day immediately preceding the two business days. This rate applies to all transactions during the forthcoming month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current programme/offer with Microsoft.

Azure Spring Apps offer different plans to serve different customer needs. For the basic plan, it's the entry level plan for individual dev/test purpose. For the standard plan, it provides managed OSS Spring components with built-in and pre-configured settings for build, configuration management, service registry etc. For the standard consumption and dedicated plans, they are hosted in Azure Container Apps environments and designed to seamlessly interact with other apps running in the same environment with simplified networking and unified observability. And for the enterprise plan, it provides managed VMware Tanzu components and addresses enterprise requirements around configuration management, integration, portability, flexibility, all backed by commercial support from VMware and Microsoft.

Enterprise Plan

The Enterprise plan provides VMware Tanzu components and address enterprise requirements around configuration management, integration, portability, flexibility, all backed by commercial support from VMware and Microsoft.

The pricing for the Enterprise plan is composed of the following two parts:

  • Infrastructure pricing, set by Microsoft, based on vCPU and memory usage of apps and managed Tanzu components.
  • Tanzu component licensing (software IP) pricing, set by VMware, based on vCPU usage of apps.

About Infrastructure pricing, for each app instance in the Enterprise Plan, Azure Spring Apps charges for one base unit price of 'Enterprise vCPU and memory group duration', which includes 12 GB of memory and 6 vCPUs. When you exceed either, or both, of the capacities included in the 'Enterprise vCPU and memory group duration', you will be billed for the actual additional usage based on the total 'Enterprise Overage Memory Duration' and 'Enterprise Overage vCPU Duration'. The first 50 vCPU-hours and 100 memory GB-hours are free each month.

About Tanzu component licensing (software IP) pricing, it is calculated based on vCPU consumption of user apps running in the Enterprise plan. As an example, considering you have 17.5 vCPU in your Enterprise service instance with the following resource allocation, and then the Hourly cost of Software IP = VMware Tanzu licence cost x 12. And the first 50 vCPU-hours and 100 memory GB-hours are free each month.

Enterprise plan pricing

About Infrastructure pricing, we now offer both Pay-as-you-go and Azure Savings Plan options. About Tanzu component licensing (software IP) pricing, besides the Pay-as-you-go option, you can also negotiate a discounted price with VMware based on your commitment. See details in Licensing cost details.

Standard consumption plan (preview)

The Standard consumption plan is hosted in Azure Container Apps environments and designed to seamlessly interact with other apps running in the same environment with simplified networking and unified observability. For each app instance in the Standard consumption plan, Azure Spring Apps charges for requests and resource allocation measured in vCPU and GBibyte (GB). Applications scale on-demand based on requests and events. App instances are billed for active usage when they are running. An application can be configured to scale to zero instance when there are no requests or events to process. No usage charges apply when an application is scaled to zero.

You can optionally configure Apps in the Standard consumption plan with a minimum number of app instances to be always running in idle mode. When an application scales down to its minimum number of app instances, usage is charged at a reduced idle rate when an app instance is inactive. An app instance enters active mode and is charged at the active rate when it is starting up, when it is processing requests, or when its vCPU or bandwidth usage are above the active billing thresholds1. The first 50 vCPU-hours, 100 memory GB-hours and 2 million requests are free each month and shared in Azure Container Apps environments.

1An app instance is active when vCPU usage is above 0.01 cores or when data received is above 1,000 bytes per second.

Standard dedicated plan (preview)

The Standard dedicated plan is hosted in Azure Container Apps environments and designed to seamlessly interact with other apps running in the same environment with simplified networking and unified observability. In addition to the consumption plan, you can add dedicated workload profiles to fit characteristics of your workload. Workload profiles determine the amount of compute and memory resources available to Spring apps deployed in the Standard consumption & dedicated plan. See Azure Container Apps workload profile to learn more. You will be billed for the total number of vCPUs and memory provisioned in dedicated workload profile, per second that each instance is running. More than one app can run in a single workload profile depending on how many resources each app requires and the resources available in the workload profile. These workload profiles can automatically scale out to multiple instances as needed.
