General availability: Reservations for Microsoft Fabric
Published date: November 16, 2023
We are excited to announce reservation pricing for Microsoft Fabric that will allow you to pre-commit to Fabric Capacity Units in one-year increments, helping you save up to 40.5 percent over the pay-as-you-go prices (excluding Power BI Capacity SKUs). You can pay for all your consumption, across every Fabric workload, with a single, unified bill and use the Capacity Metrics app to understand and track your usage.
The reservation discount will automatically apply to your matching usage of capacity units on an hourly basis and the process of purchasing a reservation is streamlined. Reservations are available as a one-year commitment.
- You can choose to pay monthly or upfront.
- You can increase the size of Fabric capacity reservations by purchasing additional reservations or by exchanging them for new ones.
- You can exchange existing Azure Synapse Analytics Dedicated SQL pool (formerly SQL DW) reservations to Fabric capacity reservations.
- Reservation for Fabric capacity doesn't cover storage or networking charges associated with the Microsoft Fabric usage; it only covers Fabric capacity usage.
