Traffic Manager Pricing

Geo-route incoming traffic to your app for better performance and availability

Azure Traffic Manager helps reduce the downtime and improve the responsiveness of important applications by routing incoming traffic across multiple deployments in different regions. Built-in health checks and automatic rerouting help ensure high availability if a service fails. Use Traffic Manager with Azure services, including Web Apps, Cloud Services and Virtual Machines, or combine it with on-premises services for hybrid deployments and smooth cloud migration.

Pricing Details

Traffic Manager billing is based on the number of DNS queries received, with a discount for services receiving more than 1 billion monthly queries. We also charge for each monitored endpoint (the rate depends on whether it’s an Azure or an external service.)

First 1 billion DNS queries/month $- per million queries
Over 1 billion DNS queries/month $- per million queries
Health Checks (Azure) $- per Azure endpoint/month
Fast Interval Health Checks Add-on (Azure)* $- per Azure endpoint/month
Health Checks (External) $- per external endpoint/month
Fast Interval Health Checks Add-on (External)* $- per external endpoint/month

*Fast endpoint health checks need to be purchased as an add-on to basic endpoint health checks.
