Support & SLA

  • Free billing and subscription management support are included.
  • We guarantee that Cognitive Services running in the standard tier will be available at least 99.9 percent of the time. No SLA is provided for the free trial. Read the SLA.


  • For upload operations, a transaction is counted for every image uploaded.

    For training operations, a transaction is counted for every 10 images trained. Each operation is rounded up to the nearest increment of 10 images. For example, a training operation that includes 149,995 images will count as 15,000 transactions.

    For prediction operations, a transaction is counted for every API call.

  • Each day the maximum number of images stored in the project is logged. The average of this number over the month is the number of images per month. Storage will round up to the next instance of 1,000. So if there is an average of 1,897 images in workspace that will be counted as 2,000 images.
