Pricing in cloud services page vs azure batch pool creation page RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I look at the pricing page for Azure Cloud Services (North Europe, monthly) it tells me a D1v2 instance costs about £71.54/month:

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/pricing/details/cloud-services/

    When I create a pool in Azure Batch (North Europe), and select Cloud Services then look at D1_V2 in the pricing tier, it says the price is about £36.60/month.  There are similar stories for the other instance sizes.

    I feel I must be missing something obvious, but why is there a difference in price?

    Cheers,

    James.

  • Hi James,

    The node pricing blade does not dynamically update if you select a different configuration while having the node sku selection blade open.

    There is an issue with pricing when Cloud Services are selected. We are working on a solution/fix.

    Cheers,

    Fred
