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 London closing spot rates that are captured in the two business days prior to the last business day of the previous month end. If the two business days prior to the end of the month fall on a bank holiday in major markets, the rate setting day is generally the day immediately preceding the two business days. This rate applies to all transactions during the upcoming 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.

  • Basic, Standard and Premium tiers include an amount of storage as part of their pricing. As storage exceeds the included amount, registries are charged for their additional storage.

  • Yes, it’s possible to change the SKU in the managed tier using the Azure CLI. Users will be charged at the price for the previous SKU up until the point of the change, and with the new SKU price after the change is made.

  • The bill will display the cost of each managed registry based on the SKU of the registry, as well as any network charges.

  • Standard networking fees apply to network egress from or between azure data centers. We recommend maintaining a registry in the same datacenter as your container deployments. See the geo-replication feature to manage multiple regions as one, providing network-close deployments across multiple regions.
