How to buy Azure Stack
Pay-as-you-use software pricing
Azure Stack offers pay-as-you-use pricing, just like you get with Azure. Run infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) on Azure Stack with no upfront fees, and use the same subscriptions, monetary commitments, and billing tools as Azure. The pay-as-you-use package is available through Enterprise Agreements (EA) and the Cloud Solution Provider program (CSP).

If you aren’t always connected to Azure or are otherwise unable to transmit metering information, you may choose to use Azure Stack in a disconnected mode. For the disconnected operating mode, we offer a capacity model pricing package—a fixed fee, annual subscription based on the number of physical cores in your system.
Integrated system purchase
Azure Stack is delivered as an integrated system with software installed by our hardware partners on pre-qualified hardware. You purchase Azure Stack hardware and hardware support directly from these hardware partners. Various payment options are available - from CAPEX to leasing to payment based on flexible capacity.
Azure Stack for service providers
Service providers can deliver Azure hybrid cloud solutions in a consistent manner with Azure Stack. The pay-as-you-use model of CSP allows you to manage both your Azure and Azure Stack resources using the same Partner Center and billing interfaces. And your end-customers will be able to use the same subscriptions across both Azure and Azure Stack.
Integrated support experience
Get an integrated, consistent support experience that covers the full system lifecycle when you use Azure Stack. You need two support instruments—one with Microsoft (or your Cloud Solution Provider) for Azure services support and one with your hardware provider for systems support. Azure services support is included If you already have Premier, Azure, or Partner support with Microsoft. No matter which support team you call first, you get coordinated issue escalation and resolution.
Available around the world
Azure Stack is initially available in 46 countries through our integrated systems partners. Additional countries will be added based on customer demand and supportability.
