News|by Leanne Bevan|4 October 2016
Effective 1st October 2016, Microsoft has lowered prices on many of it’s most popular virtual machines (VMs).
- General Purpose Instances: Prices of Dv2 series VMs will be reduced by up to 15% and new lower prices for A1 and A2 Basic VMs by up to 50%.
- Compute Optimised Instances: Prices of F series will be reduced up to 11%.
- Av2 series: In November 2016, Microsoft will introduce new A series virtual machines (Av2), with prices up to 36% lower than the A series Standard VM prices available today.
A series VMs are entry-level compute tier. Dv2 series VMs are general-purpose tier, with more memory and local SSD storage than A series. F series VMs provide an even higher CPU-to-memory ratio with a lower price than the Dv2 series.
In addition to these reduced prices, for customers using Windows Server with Software Assurance, the recently announced Microsoft Azure Hybrid Use Benefit can help you run Windows Server workloads at 41% lower cost.
