Last year, Microsoft announced commitment plans for Azure which offered up to 32% discounts. Now, Microsoft has pulled this offer for new subscribers. However, existing subscribers can continue to use this offer.
Make a monthly commitment to Azure for 6 months or 12 months and receive a significant discount of 20-32%. The discount you earn is determined by the monthly monetary amount you commit. We offer two options:
- Pay Monthly: Minimum commitment $500/month billed monthly
- Pre-Pay: Pre-Pay for the entire term and get an additional discount
If you have an unused commitment balance at the end of a billing month, it will be rolled over as a credit to future billing months until the end of your offer term.
Microsoft is yet to comment on this new change in policy.
Update: Microsoft provided the following statement regarding this policy change,
“We have nothing to share at this time, but Microsoft will have updates in the next month. We’ll keep you posted.”
