Azure Spot Virtual Machines pricing

Run interruptible workloads at deep discounts

Purchase unused compute capacity at deep discounts – up to 90 percent compared to pay as you go prices. *

If your workload can tolerate interruptions, and its execution time is flexible, then using Spot Virtual Machines can significantly reduce the cost of running it in Azure.

* Actual discounts may vary based on region, VM type, and Azure compute capacity available when the workload is deployed.
