New meters for SQL Server and BizTalk Server on Azure Virtual Machines

Between 20 June and 8 July 2016, we will assign per-minute usage to dedicated 8-core, 16-core, 20-core and 32-core SQL Server and BizTalk Server meters, and eliminate the usage multiplier. Service rates will not change; however, you may need to modify your billing routines before 20 June 2016 if they rely on the resource GUID or meter names. SQL Server and BizTalk Server usage on 1-core, 2-core, 3-core and 4-core VM sizes will continue to be emitted on the existing 4-core meter.

In the .csv download for your deployment during this transition period, you’ll notice two line items for each VM size that you have running: one for usage emitted on the SQL Server or BizTalk Server 4-core meter and another for usage on the new dedicated meter corresponding with your deployment’s size. The resource GUIDs for SQL Server and BizTalk Server for 8-core, 16-core, 20-core and 32-core VM sizes will change, and the resource name of the existing 4-core meter will also change.

The table below shows changes to the Resource Names, usage multipliers and Resource GUID as a result of this transition. We recommend that you update your applications accordingly.

Resource name VM size Core count Usage Multiplier before 20 June 2016 Resource GUID before 20 June 2016 New resource name Usage Multiplier effective on 20 June 2016 New resource GUID effective on 20 June 2016
