Batch pricing

Cloud-scale job scheduling and compute management

Azure Batch provides job scheduling and cluster management, allowing applications or algorithms to run in parallel at scale. Low-priority VMs can reduce the costs of running certain workloads, but they are only suitable for certain types of applications and workloads. Read more about spot virtual machines.

Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes. Actual pricing may vary depending on the type of agreement entered with Microsoft, date of purchase, and the currency exchange rate. Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using Thomson Reuters benchmark rates refreshed on the first day of each calendar month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current program/offer with Microsoft. Contact an Azure sales specialist for more information on pricing or to request a price quote. See frequently asked questions about Azure pricing.

General purpose

Balanced CPU-to-memory ratio. Ideal for testing and development, small to medium databases, and low to medium traffic web servers.

Av2 Standard

Av2 Standard is the latest generation of A-series virtual machines with similar CPU performance and faster disk. These virtual machines are suitable for development workloads, build servers, code repositories, low-traffic websites and web applications, micro services, early product experiments, and small databases. Like the prior A Standard generation, Av2 virtual machines will include load balancing and auto-scaling at no additional charge.

DCasv5-series (without temporary storage)/DCadsv5-series Preview

The DCasv5-series and DCadsv5-series virtual machines run against 3rd Generation AMD EPYCTM 7763v (Milan) processor. This processor has base frequency of 2.55Ghz and can achieve up to 3.7GHz. These VMs offer additional confidentiality and integrity leveraging AMD SEV-SNP (Secure Nested Page) security feature. Customer will have VM level isolation which can help to remove cloud operators, Azure host, and other Azure infrastructural components out of trusted boundary without additional code modification.

The DCasv5 virtual machine sizes do not have any temporary storage thus lowering the price of entry. You can attach Premium/Standard SSDs, and Standard HDDs disk storage to these VMs. Disk storage is billed separately from virtual machines. See pricing for disks.

D2d – D64d v4

The Ddv4 series virtual machines are based on the Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8272CL processor. This custom processor runs at a base speed of 2.5Ghz and can achieve up to 3.4Ghz all core turbo frequency. The Ddv4/Ddsv4 virtual machine sizes feature fast, large local SSD storage (up to 2,400 GiB) and are well suited for applications that benefit from low latency, high-speed local storage. For example, applications that need large numbers of reads and writes to temporary storage or applications that need temporary storage data for scratch files or caches would benefit from these new VM series.

The Ddv4 VM sizes offer a combination of vCPUs, memory, and temporary storage able to meet the requirements associated with most production workloads. You can attach Standard SSDs and Standard HDDs disk storage to these VMs. To use Premium SSD or Ultra Disk storage, select Ddsv4 VMs. Disk storage is billed separately from virtual machines.

The Ddsv4 VM sizes offer a combination of vCPUs, memory, and temporary storage able to meet the requirements associated with most production workloads. You can attach Standard SSDs, Standard HDDs, and Premium SSDs disk storage to these VMs. You can also attach Ultra Disk storage based on its regional availability. Disk storage is billed separately from virtual machines.
