In addition to your individual MSDN subscription benefits that provide a monthly credit, we also have a great way for teams to work together. As an MSDN subscriber you can create multiple MSDN Dev and Test Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions, which allow team members to share the same subscription, enabling collaboration while also providing isolation between teams and environment. You also enjoy the same low MSDN usage rates. This offer is exclusively available for MSDN subscribers.Learn More
All MSDN subscribers can now receive monthly credits for Azure services. Here are some examples of ways you can use the $100 per month credit included in the Premium or Platforms subscriptions.
If you exceed your monthly credits, your service will be disabled for that month. You can choose to turn off your Spending Limit, and any usage each month in excess of the monthly credits will be charged at the rates specified in this offer. Read more about the Spending Limit feature.
Azure MSDN dev and test subscriptions are specifically for dev and test usage only. Production workloads must be run on regular subscriptions.
The Azure MSDN benefit is for development and test purposes only and is offered at discounted usage rates. Usage within the Azure MSDN subscription does not carry a financially-backed SLA. We reserve the right to suspend any instance (VM or cloud service) that runs continuously for more than 120 hours or if we determine that the instance is being used for production. We are making this capacity available to MSDN subscribers on a best efforts basis; there is no guarantee of capacity availability.
Not at this time.
The MSDN dev and test pay-as-you-go offer enables account administrators to create multiple subscriptions, and to assign specific co-administrators, who are also MSDN subscribers, to each subscription. This enables multiple teams to have isolated environments and to control membership for each project separately.
The deeply discounted development and test rates that are part of the MSDN dev and test pay-as-you-go offer require every account owner and co-administrator to be MSDN subscribers.
Credit pooling is not available, as the benefit is designed for individual subscriber usage.
