Announcing Azure Synapse Analytics pre-purchase plans, now generally available
Published date: 14 October, 2021
Azure Synapse simplifies your analytics workloads by providing data preparation, data warehousing and big data analytics in a single, secure workspace.
Now save up to 28 percent on your Azure Synapse workloads
Starting today, you can now optimize your Azure Synapse costs with Azure Synapse pre-purchase plans, now generally available across all global regions except China.
Pre-purchase plans enable you to pre-pay for Azure Synapse compute for a one-year term. Customers that use this pricing option can save up to 28 percent compared to pay-as-you-go pricing. All generally available core capabilities in Azure Synapse are eligible for pre-purchase excluding Synapse storage.
This plan differs from the reserved capacity pricing option in that it allows you to pre-purchase SCUs (Synapse Commit Units) that can be used at any time and across any workload. This includes data integration using code-free Data Flows, big data and machine learning with Apache Spark, data lake exploration using serverless SQL, and data warehousing with our industry-leading SQL engine.
Simplify end-to-end analytics deployment across your organization
Azure Synapse pre-purchase plans make it possible to accelerate deployment timelines by providing a single consumption model that powers a wide range of tasks for each of your data teams. This means accessing discounted prices to enable collaboration and insights while maintaining workload flexibility.
