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 Thomson Reuters benchmark rates refreshed on the first day of each calendar month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current programme/offer with Microsoft. Contact an Azure sales specialist for more information on pricing or to request a price quote. For more information on Azure pricing see frequently asked questions.

For snapshot sharing, Data Share will charge for Dataset Snapshots and Snapshot Execution. Dataset Snapshot is the operation to move a dataset from its source to a destination. Snapshot Execution includes the resources required to move a dataset from the source to the destination. Charges are prorated by the minute and rounded up.

Type Price
Dataset Snapshots $- per dataset-snapshot
Snapshot Execution $- per vCore-hour

In-place sharing does not incur a snapshot charge. Data Share does not charge for setting up and configuring in-place sharing.
