  • http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/sql-database/#basic-standard-and-premium

    This page has the number below.   Are these number per gb?  For example the standard column below, is S2 100 per month per GB?  Would a 10 gb S2 db be 1000 per month and then 2000 when the preview is over?

    Preview Price $0.08/day
    (~$3/month)
    S1: $0.65/day
    (~$20/month)

    S2: $3.23/day
    (~$100/month)
    P1: $15/day
    (~$465/month)

    P2: $30/day
    (~$930/month)

    P3: $120/day
    (~$3,720/month)

  • Hi,

    Pricing is per day if the data is created irrespective of data in it.

    You are billed the flat rate for each day the database exists, regardless of usage or if the database is active for less than a day.

    For example, if you create a database and delete it 5 minutes later your bill will reflect a charge for 1 database day.

    If you delete a database and then create another with the same name, your bill will reflect a charge for two separate databases on that day.

    If any further clarification is required on billing, you may raise FREE service request at http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/options/ , select Get support and select the support type as Billing.

    Hope this helps.

    So a Standard S2 1 gig db costs the same as a Standard S2 250 gb db? They are both 100 per month under the preview pricing?
