Features and benefits of Azure Virtual Machine RIs

Azure VM reserved instances (RIs) can help you to achieve more at a less cost.
More resources at less cost
  • You can significantly reduce costs—up to 72 percent compared to pay-as-you-go prices—with one-year or three-year terms on Azure VMs.
  • Lower your TCO by combining Azure RIs with pay-as-you-go prices to manage costs across predictable and variable workloads.
  • It allows you to further reduce your costs with reserved instance size flexibility.
  • You can now improve budgeting and forecasting with a single upfront payment, making it easy to calculate your investments
More flexibility and simplicity
  • You can purchase Azure virtual machine RIs in three simple steps—specify your Azure region, virtual machine type, and term (one year or three years).
  • Exchange Azure RIs across any region and any series as your workload or application needs change.
  • You also have the flexibility to cancel an Azure RI at any time and return the remaining months of a reserved instance back to Microsoft (up to the yearly limit) for an early termination fee.
  • Simplify and automate the management of Azure RIs with their better adaptability. Azure can automatically apply these RIs to other VM sizes within the same group and region. As a result, you will spend less time managing your RIs.
