Support and SLA
- We provide technical support for all Azure services released to General Availability, including BizTalk Services, through Azure Support, starting at $29.0/month. Billing and subscription management support is provided at no cost.
- We guarantee that at least 99.9% of the time, customers will have connectivity between their BizTalk Service Environment in the Basic, Standard and Premium tiers and our Internet gateway. We do not offer an SLA for the BizTalk Services Free or Developer tier. Availability is calculated over a monthly billing cycle. To learn more about our SLA, please visit the SLA page.
- What is the difference between BizTalk Services and running BizTalk Server in a VM?
BizTalk Services provides a true Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) architecture for building integration solutions in the cloud. With the PaaS model, you can focus completely on the application logic and leave all the infrastructure management to Microsoft – there is no need to manage or patch virtual machines, we ensure availability and you control scale on demand by simply requesting more or less capacity through the Microsoft Azure classic portal. BizTalk Server on Azure Virtual Machines provides an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) architecture, which allows you to create virtual machines and configure them exactly as you do in your on-premises environment, making it easier to run existing applications in the cloud with no code changes. With IaaS, you are still responsible for configuring the virtual machines and managing them (for example, installing software and OS patches) and for architecting the application for high availability. If you are looking at building new integration solutions that minimise your infrastructure management effort, use BizTalk Services. If you are looking to quickly migrate your existing BizTalk solutions or looking for an on-demand environment to develop and test BizTalk Server applications, use BizTalk Server on Azure Infrastructure Services.
- What is a “BizTalk Unit”?
For BizTalk Service Basic, Standard and Premium, we provide scale-out capabilities. One BizTalk Unit is the smallest deployment size, and you can scale out in terms of BizTalk Units. Each BizTalk Unit comes with a certain compute capacity. For BizTalk Service Basic, Standard and Premium, you can scale out up to 8 BizTalk Units.
- How is the BizTalk Services charge shown on my bill?
For every hour of usage of a BizTalk Unit, we charge 1 BizTalk Unit hour. Your bill will reflect the total BizTalk Unit hours used. Based on the tier of the BizTalk Services that you use, one or more of the following meters will be shown on your bill:
- Developer BizTalk Unit Hours
- Basic BizTalk Unit Hours
- Standard BizTalk Unit Hours
- Premium BizTalk Unit Hours
For example, if you use 2 units of BizTalk Services Premium and each unit is active for 24 hours, we will charge you for 48 Premium BizTalk Unit hours.
- How am I charged when I scale the number of BizTalk Units?
For the clock hour during which the scale changes happened, you will be charged based on the highest number of BizTalk Units used during that clock hour.
- When does the BizTalk Services billing start and when does it end?
We start charging when your BizTalk service is created and the service is in Active state. Billing is stopped once the BizTalk service is deleted. Please note that you will be charged for the entire clock hour in which the service is created or deleted.
For example, if a customer using BizTalk Services Premium created 1 unit at 1:15 p.m. UTC and deleted it at 4:30 p.m. UTC, the customer will be charged 4 Premium BizTalk Unit hours.
- What is included in the cost of a BizTalk Service?
When you provision a BizTalk Service, you pay for the dedicated service, hosted and managed by Microsoft. The cost of the Access Control Namespace, Azure SQL Database and the Azure Storage account are not included in the cost of the BizTalk Service. As a result, you must pay for these additional requirements.
- Do I need a separate storage account? Is Egress included?
While you’ll need to bring your own storage, egress is included, which differs from many other services.
- Is the BizTalk Adapter Service included in the service? How do I receive the software?
Yes, we provide this for BizTalk Services customers, and you can find the download here.
