Azure Database Migration Service pricing

The Azure Database Migration Service (DMS) is a fully managed service that is designed for both operational database and data warehouse migrations.

The Standard pricing tier supports offline (also called “one-off”) migrations. The Standard pricing tier, which offers 1-, 2- and 4-vCore options, is generally available and free to customers.

The Premium pricing tier supports offline and online migrations (also called “continuous migration”) for business-critical workloads that require minimal downtime. The Premium pricing tier is currently available for free in public preview.

Information on regional availability for the Azure Database Migration service can be found here. In subsequent Azure DMS updates, we will include additional source-target pairs. Sign up for private preview of additional source target pairs.
