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.

Azure Container Apps is billed based on per-second resource consumption and requests. The first 180,000 vCPU-seconds, 360,000 GiB-seconds, and 2 million requests each month are free. Beyond that, you pay for what you use on a per second basis based on the number of vCPU-s and GiB-s your applications consume.

Requests

Container Apps are billed based on total number of requests executed each month. Executions are counted each time a app is executed in response to an HTTP request or an event. The first two million requests are included free each month.

Meter Price Free Grant (Per Month)
Requests $- per million 2 Million

Resource consumption

Container Apps are billed based on resource consumption measured in vCPU seconds and gibibyte seconds (GiB-s). The first 180,000 vCPU-seconds and 360,000 GiB-seconds each month are free. Active usage occurs while your container is starting or while there is at least one request being processed by the application. By default, applications scale to zero. You can also configure Container Apps with a minimum number of instances to be always running in idle mode. Idle usage is charged at a reduced rate when the application isn’t processing any requests.

Meter Active Usage Price Idle Usage Price* Free Grant (Per Month)
vCPU (seconds) $- per second $- per second 180,000 vCPU-seconds
Memory (GiB-Seconds) $- per second $- per second 360,000 GiB-seconds
*You can optionally choose to keep a minimum capacity always running in idle mode to optimize response times based on your needs. This capacity is charged at a reduced rate when you are not processing any requests.
