Support and SLA

  • We provide technical support for all Azure services released to general availability, including Application Gateway, through Azure Support, starting at $29/month. Billing and subscription management support is provided at no cost.
  • We guarantee that each Application Gateway Cloud Service having two or more medium or larger instances, or deployments capable of supporting autoscale or zone redundancy, will be available at least 99.95% of the time. Learn more about our SLA.

FAQ

  • Yes, a partial hour is billed as a full hour.

  • No, the small application gateway size is offered primarily for DEV/TEST purposes. Running production workloads on small application gateways may overload the processing capacity of the small instances. Application Gateway supports deployment with one or more instances within the same cloud service. Running an Application Gateway cloud service with only one instance is not recommended due to the lack of high availability.

  • Capacity Units measure consumption-based cost that is charged in addition to the fixed cost. Capacity unit charge is also computed hourly or part-hourly. There are three dimensions to capacity unit – compute unit, persistent connections and throughput. Compute unit is a measure of processor capacity consumed. Please refer to our documentation page.
