RemoteApp Pricing

Your apps, our cloud, no hassle

Azure RemoteApp helps you to take advantage of cloud’s agility and provides you a cost effective platform to deliver your Windows apps from the cloud. You can meet the dynamic needs of your business without getting overwhelmed by expensive costs on-premises.

With our flexible pricing structure, if your users use less, you will pay less. You can also choose to pay for unlimited pricing when it makes sense to your business. With the ability to add and remove users at any time, you just subscribe, without committing to expensive infrastructure costs.

For a limited time, qualifying Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) customers can get up to 40% off Azure RemoteApp and qualifying RDS software assurance customers can get ARA for as low as $2 per user per month. According to our total cost of ownership tool, the offer can provide up to 75% savings compared to RDS deployments on-premises.
