Microsoft has announced price reductions for Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, for F series and general purpose A1 Basic of up to 24 percent and 61 percent respectively.
Microsoft’s VM pricing page gives full region details, but as an example UK South prices will be as follows:
The reductions announced are effective immediately, and Microsoft reports that there will be price reductions for their D-series general purpose instances in the near future.
The price for Hot Block Blob Storage has been reduced by up to
31 percent and for Cool Block Blob Storage by up to 38 percent, for customers using Azure Blob Storage Accounts.
To take advantage of these new lower prices, customers currently using general purpose Blob Storage can move data to an Azure Blob Storage account via tools such as AZ copy – Microsoft’s Windows utility designed for copying data using simple commands.
The price reduction for UK South is as below:
Azure Storage Price reductions
Hot Block Blob -26%
Cool Block Blob -38%
Full pricing details per region can be found at Microsoft’s Storage pricing page.
Again, the price reductions take effect from 6 February 2017, Venkat Gattamneni, Director Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure, says, “We strive hard at Azure to offer you the best value in one of the most cost effective ways in the public cloud.
“We believe in providing a comprehensive cloud platform that not only enables customers to innovate rapidly, but to also do so at the best possible prices. To that end, today we are happy to announce significant price reductions on several Azure Virtual Machine families and Storage types. We hope this will further lower the barrier to entry for our customers and accelerate cloud transformation.”
Michael Frisby, Vuzion MD, comments, “These price reductions show that implementing your Digital Transformation strategy on the Microsoft cloud is the most cost effective solution for businesses today and an example of how as customers and resellers we all benefit from Microsoft’s continued investment in hyper-scale cloud infrastructure.”
