Microsoft Imagine gets you started with the Microsoft Azure services you need to develop in the cloud at no cost* using Visual Studio Community 2015. This benefit provides you with access to a free tier including the following services:

  • Azure App Services – A fully managed cloud offering that enables you to build and deploy native and web apps in minutes. Use the technology you love – ASP.NET, Java, PHP, Node.js or Python. Add a variety of essential app services including authentication, social integration, offline data sync and more, regardless of whether your app runs on Windows 10, iOS or Android. Set up continuous integration and deployment workflows with VSO, GitHub, TeamCity, Hudson or BitBucket, enabling you to automatically build, test and deploy your web app on each successful code check-in or integration tests.
  • Notification Hubs – Keep your app in touch with users by enabling you to send mobile push notifications tailored by audience, language and location using any back-end and major mobile platforms.
  • SQL Database – Build secure, global SaaS applications that support massive scale.
  • MySQL database from MySQL in-app (Preview) gives you the experience of native MySQL support for your Web Apps. You can deploy CMS solutions such as WordPress, Joomla etc., or customised applications driven by the MySQL database. Read this article to learn more about the MySQL in-app (Preview) feature.
  • Application Insights provides you with deep diagnostics and performance telemetry to ensure your web apps and services are running at their maximum potential. Search and analyse your data to continuously improve your application, prioritise future investments and improve the overall customer experience.
  • Visual Studio Team Services provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.

Microsoft Azure for Microsoft Imagine is available now for validated Microsoft Imagine students at no cost, commitment or time limit. You can access more services later if you want, but you can host your web apps and websites today with the power of the Microsoft cloud behind you and it won’t cost anything.

*Costs are limited by providing access to Azure services that include a free tier of service use. For more details on Azure pricing, please visit our Pricing page.

You will initially only be able to access Azure services that are available with a free tier of service use. Your account will start with a zero-dollar Spending Limit, which means that you will only be able to consume Azure services within the free tier of the service offer. You can choose to upgrade to Azure Free Trial, if you have not already created an Azure Free Trial, and consume Azure services beyond the free tier. If you have already created an Azure Free Trial then you have the option to upgrade to a Pay-as-you-go subscription. Microsoft Imagine subscriptions are not eligible for quota increases. If you have a Microsoft Imagine subscription and want to increase your quotas, you can upgrade to a Pay-as-you-go subscription.
