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. For more information on Azure pricing see frequently asked questions.

Flexible Server provides maximum control for your database with a simplified developer experience and is best for workloads that require:

  • Custom maintenance windows and additional configuration parameters for database optimization
  • Zone redundant high availability
  • Stop/Start capabilities and burstable SKUs for cost optimization

Burstable

Workloads with flexible compute requirements.

Burstable

Instance vCores Memory Pay as you go
B1ms 1 2 GiB $-
B2s 2 4 GiB $-

Storage

You are charged for the storage that you provision for your server. Storage can be provisioned up to 16 TiB

Price
GiB/month $-

Backup Storage

Backup storage is the storage associated with automated backups of your server. Increasing your backup retention period increases the backup storage that is consumed by your server. There is no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100% of your total provisioned server storage. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GiB/month.

Price Note
GiB/month $- GRS requires twice the amount of storage capacity because it creates a replica. If you have configured the backup storage to be geo-redundant (GRS), the price will be 2x this price. Price per GiB remains the same.

General Purpose

Most business workloads requiring balanced compute and memory with scalable I/O throughput.

Unique capabilities to reduce total cost of ownership

Flexible and transparent pricing

Scale compute and storage independently based on your workload. Only pay for what you use.

Optimize your cost

Save up to 60% compared to pay-as-you-go options with reserved capacity.

Reduce total cost of ownership with burstable instances and Stop/Start capabilities so when the database is stopped, you only pay for storage.

Choice of deployment option

Meet your database management and customization needs with deployment options including Single Server, Flexible Server and Hyperscale.

  • Flexible Server is billed on a predictable, hourly rate. You are billed for the compute and storage you provision and the backup storage you consume. On your bill, you will see a separate line item for compute, storage, and backup storage. Compute is billed per vCore-hour. Storage and backup storage are billed per GiB-month.
  • Zone redundant HA servers have a primary and secondary replica. You are billed for the provisioned compute and storage for both the primary and secondary replica. For example, if you have a primary with 4 vCores of compute and 512 GiB of provisioned storage, your secondary replica will also have 4 vCores and 512 GiB of provisioned storage. Your zone redundant HA server will be billed for 8 vCores and 1,024 GiB of storage. Depending on your backup storage volume, you may also be billed for backup storage.
  • Backup storage is the storage associated with automated backups of your server, including data and log backups. Increasing your backup retention period increases the backup storage that is consumed by your server. There is no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100% of your total provisioned storage for your primary server. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GiB-month. For example, if your primary server has a storage size of 512 GiBs, you will get 512 GiBs of backup at no additional cost. However, if the backup is 612 GiBs, you will pay for the incremental 100 GiBs.
  • You are billed for each full hour that your server exists regardless of whether the server was active for the full hour. If you have scaled up your database, you will be billed for the higher number of vCores used within the hour. If you have switched between two compute tiers, you will be billed for the higher priced compute tier. For example:
    • If you create a server and delete it after five minutes, you are charged for one full hour for the provisioned compute and storage.
    • If you create a server with 8 vCores of General Purpose compute and then immediately scale up to 16 vCores of General Purpose compute, you are charged for 16 vCores of General Purpose compute for the first hour.
    • If you create a server with General Purpose compute with 8 vCores and then immediately upgrade it to Memory Optimized compute with 8 vCores, you are charged for 8 vCores Memory Optimized compute for the first hour.
  • While your server is stopped, you will only be billed for the storage you have provisioned and any backup storage you consume that exceed 100% of your primary provisioned storage volume. While your server is stopped, you will not be billed for compute.
  • Yes. Standard networking charges apply for network egress. Refer here for more details.
  • Reserved capacity allows you to reserve compute power. This pricing option enables savings up to 47 percent for 1-year, and up to 64 percent for 3-years compared to pay-as-you-go pricing.
