We chose the serverless option for the database which has saved us a lot of money. Our costs are approximately £600 per month.

The type of license depends on what you want. This is a perpetual and monthly license, similar to Office 365. My company pays for the license and I am not sure about the price. Sometimes my company wants to have a micro business case study to see if it is an actual benefit for us to purchase. It is a strategic solution and we have to make sure that the organization understands this is going to save them money in the long run.

There is a license for Azure, and whether it's a monthly or annual payment depends on the agreement you have with Microsoft. A long-term plan is more cost effective.

It requires a less expensive version because currently, not every customer is able to buy it. If it could have a smaller setup that doesn't require so many resources, it would be helpful, and we would be able to use it in more cases. We are a small country, and most of our customers are quite small businesses.

The is a monthly licensing fee. I can't speak to how much we actually pay, however. There is just one fee. You do not have any more costs over and above that.

The company chose Synapse Analytics because the price is fair and I understand it's cheaper than Snowflake.

The licensing is okay. There might be a few extra fees in addition to the standard license.

The solution is subscription-based. You can also pay to use the product as you go. This is an advantage, you only get charged for the time you actually use it.

We pay a licensing fee on a monthly basis. We find the pricing to be fair among the competition.

We normally pay between $300 and $500 per month, which is quite expensive for how much we actually use it, performance- and usage-wise. They have a cheap version and an expensive version, and our usage usually falls in the middle ground, which makes it not as cost-effective as it could be.

It's very difficult to price unless you know exactly how the customer is using it.

Because it's a cloud solution, the cost is a different convention and the licensing costs are not the same.

The cost of the licensing depends on the size of the warehouse, where the cost of storage is approximately $130 USD per terabyte. The charge might be several thousand dollars or more each month. There are multiple options that are available at an extra cost. For example, the advanced threat protection costs an extra $25 USD.

We've found the pricing to be fair. It's not too expensive.

The price of the package is not expensive and depends on how much it is used.

Its price could be better. It was a school project, and I got it for free. If I try to pay through my company, it is a little bit more expensive as compared to Oracle.

There is a cost calculator available online that allows you to input your entire scenario, and it will get back to you with information on what the costs are going to be. You can adjust it to include different requirements to best suit your budgeting needs. Microsoft also offers suggestions on what you would need based on your account. Microsoft is trying to be more competitive and wants to be very accommodating.

They are cost aggressive, and it integrates well with other Microsoft tools. For example Downstream and Teams.

In comparison, I find that AWS is much more costly.

The licensing fees for this solution are on a pay-per-use basis, and not very expensive.

The enterprise services are pretty expensive.

This solution starts at €1000.00 a month for just the basics and can go up to €300,000.00 per month for the fastest version. It's pay as you go, so you never know what your bill is going to be beforehand, and that's scary for customers. If you have someone who makes a mistake and the program's a loop that is running all night, you could receive a very expensive bill. The bad side to pay as you go is that sometimes it can stop the enthusiasm of the data scientists, as they are afraid to run a query because they are afraid of the bill and how much it will be.
