Veelgestelde vragen over de aankoop van Azure

Biedt Azure ondersteuning voor IPv6?

The Internet has expanded beyond the capacity of its early underpinning—the IPv4 protocol. Many new mobile networks and modern technologies, such as Internet of Things, depend on the virtually unlimited address capacity offered by IPv6. A growing list of governments require IPv6 client support for the services they buy and build. Now your Azure hosted services can reach these new customers with Azure IPv6-load-balanced, dual-stack (IPv4+IPv6), internet connectivity for Azure Virtual Machines. Native IPv6 connectivity (TCP, UDP, HTTP(S)) all the way to the virtual machine enables a broad range of service architectures. IPv6 for Azure Virtual Machines is available now in most Azure regions. Data transfers over IPv6 are billed at the same rates as IPv4. For more information, please visit Overview of IPv6 for Azure Load Balancer | Microsoft Azure.

Kan ik Azure gratis proberen, zonder dat er kosten in rekening worden gebracht?

Yes. With our spending limit feature, customers who sign up for a free trial, Visual Studio, MPN, or BizSpark offer can use Azure without any fear of getting charged as long as they keep the spending limit feature turned on.

Welke betalingsopties kan ik gebruiken om Azure te kopen?

You can purchase Azure using a credit or debit card. Please note that we don't accept prepaid and virtual credit cards. There may be a delay before discounts are reflected on your bill. You are solely responsible for any credit card interest or other credit card charges that may result.

The other payment option is to be invoiced. Once you opt for the invoice option, you can't move to the credit card option. To sign up for invoicing, please go here.

Can I still buy Azure on a 6-month and 12-month plan?

De abonnementen voor 6 en 12 maanden zijn niet meer verkrijgbaar. Bestaande klanten met een dergelijk abonnement kunnen Azure blijven gebruiken overeenkomstig de voorwaarden voor deze abonnementen. Klanten die liever profiteren van aanvullende kortingen en extra voordelen in ruil tegen een diepgaande betrokkenheid bij het platform, kunnen een Enterprise Agreement (EA) afsluiten.

Ik heb serverlicenties. Kan ik deze overbrengen naar Azure en vervolgens uitvoeren op Virtuele machines?

Yes, through license mobility, if you have SA you can "bring-your-own-license" for all Virtual Machines supported server products except Windows Server.

Wat is de Azure SLA-overeenkomst?

Azure has separate SLAs for all services that are generally available, and not in preview. Please refer to our SLA page for the latest details.

Hoe kan ik factureringskosten optimaliseren?

There are several ways to optimize your Azure applications:

  • Deploy two or more instances to qualify for the SLA.
  • Allocate a compute instance of the right size as per the application's requirements.
  • Make use of our free inbound data transfers to upload data to Azure.
  • Allocate compute and storage in the same region. All data transfers within a region are free.
  • Use Content Distribution Network (CDN) to reduce cost and improve performance.
  • Delete your test application immediately after your test concludes. Azure staging environment is not free. Whenever an application is deployed (even in staging), you will get charged. You can also deploy the application locally using the Azure SDK until you are comfortable deploying to the Azure cloud.
  • Allocate the right sized SQL Database based on your needs.
  • Check out Getting started with Azure cost management.

How can I edit my payment information for my Azure Subscription's?

To view and edit the Azure account information, you must sign in to the Azure Account Center as the account administrator.

  1. Go to the Azure Account Center.
  2. On the subscriptions page, click the subscription for which you want to update the payment method.
  3. On the subscription summary page, click Manage payment method. The manage payment method tool appears in a separate window.
  4. On the Manage payment method page, you can edit existing payment methods or add a new one.

For information on how to remove a credit card, see How to change the credit card used to pay for an Azure subscription.

Zijn Azure en SQL Database beschikbaar via SPLA?

Er zijn momenteel geen plannen om Azure of SQL Database aan te bieden via SPLA.

If I turn off the spending limit, can I turn it back on?

You can have the spending limit feature automatically re-enable at the beginning of your next billing cycle. The spending limit can't be re-enabled for the current billing period once it's turned off.

Wie kan Azure-services kopen?

Azure is bedoeld voor gebruik door bedrijven voor het bouwen van cloudtoepassingen en -services. Maar individuele personen (zoals consumenten) kunnen ook Azure-services kopen.

Wat zijn de SLA-credits voor Azure?

Azure SLA Credits are calculated on a per subscription basis as a percentage of the bill for that service in the billing month that the SLA was missed. The service credits are applied to the subsequent month’s bill. Generally, we provide 10% credit if we fall below the first threshold (99.95% or 99.9%, depending on the service) and 25% if we fall beneath the subsequent threshold (99%). Please refer to our SLA page for complete details.

Kan ik het bedrag van de bestedingslimiet aanpassen?

No, the Spending Limit is set at $0 and can't be adjusted. It's designed to enable customers on our Free Trial, Visual Studio, MPN, or BizSpark offers to utilize Azure with complete assurance of not being billed.

Hoe werken Azure-servicelevelovereenkomsten met huidige on-premises Microsoft-licentieovereenkomsten?

Azure Service Level Agreements are independent of our on-premises Microsoft licensing agreements. Our SLAs for Azure provide you a monthly uptime guarantee for those services you consume in the cloud, with SLA credits against what we've billed you in the event we fail to meet the guarantee.

Hoe weet ik vooraf wanneer de service niet beschikbaar is wegens gepland onderhoud?

Azure is designed to avoid downtime for customer applications, storage, and service management capability during maintenance activities on the Azure platform. Our availability commitment applies to customer applications that use a minimum of two role instances. You can learn about Azure best practices for mitigating downtime by reading High availability for applications built on Microsoft Azure. The Azure SLA is documented here.

In the event of an unplanned service disruption on the Azure Platform, status updates will be made on our service dashboard page, and customers will also receive notice in the management portal.
