Azure is the most cost-effective cloud for Windows Server or SQL Server

Call sales 0-800-026-0797

AWS is five times more expensive than Azure for Windows Server and SQL Server

Achieve the lowest cost of ownership when you combine the Azure Hybrid Benefit, reservation pricing and extended security updates.

  • Receive free extended security updates when you migrate your Windows Server and SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 workloads to Azure virtual machines.
  • Save when you prepay your compute capacity on a one- or three-year term with reserved pricing, which not only improves budget forecasting but also provides the flexibility to exchange or cancel, should business needs change.
