  • No. There is no ongoing subscription fee or consumption fees associated with your Azure Sphere purchase or the Azure Sphere Security Service. There is never an additional cost for Azure Sphere beyond the initial, one-time purchase price. However, if you build an application for Azure Sphere that consumes other Azure services, normal Azure consumption charges for those services apply.
  • No. The Azure Sphere Security Service is engineered to let device manufacturers integrate with the tools and services they already use. While the Azure Sphere Security Service runs in Azure, our customers have the choice to connect to any proprietary or public cloud for app data, and a choice in which development tools they use. Leveraging Visual Studio and Azure IoT services, however, allows organizations to develop applications for Azure Sphere more efficiently.
  • Yes. Proper licensing of Visual Studio is required to use the Visual Studio Tools for Azure Sphere. Visual Studio has a number of licensing options, including a generous, free community license.
