Site Recovery pricing

Automated replication to help protect your services

Azure Site Recovery can help you protect important services by coordinating the automated replication and recovery of protected instances at a secondary location.

Pricing details

Azure Site Recovery is billed based on number of instances protected. Every instance that is protected with Azure Site Recovery is free for the first 31 days, as noted below.

Price For First 31 days Price After 31 Days
Azure Site Recovery to customer owned sites Free $-/month per instance protected
Azure Site Recovery to Azure Free $-/month per instance protected
Azure Site Recovery between Azure regions is charged at the same rate as Azure Site Recovery to Azure

Azure Site Recovery is billed in units of the average daily number of instances you are protecting over a monthly period. For example, if you consistently protected 20 instances for the first half of the month, and none for the second half of the month, the average daily number of protected instances would be 10 for that month.
