What users are saying about Microsoft Azure pricing:
- "Pricing of Microsoft Azure services depends on the build of what you prepare to deploy."
- "It is important to consider ROI when looking at the cost of a subscription."
- "It's a metered environment, and it's pay-as-you-go. That's the big challenge with a metered environment."
- "It is operational expenditure (OPEX). There is no cost upfront. When you start using it, you have to pay the charges. Initially, the cost is less, but after you start using it more and more, the cost will go higher. It is a little bit costly, but that is okay because you get better resources. You also get better support in terms of how you create the resources. Documentation is available, and the SLAs are met."
