cal cost forecast using Azure

We are trying to create an instance for HANA Platform Edition on Azure and under Cost Forecast we can see USD 5.61 per hour when active and USD 3.65 per month when suspended.

We wanted to know what constitutes an 'Active' time period and what constitutes a 'Suspended' time period and how are both calculated.

    Hello,

    Through all the life of your instance you will have to pay for the Storage. Additionally when the instance is active you will have to pay for the compute. For more information see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/

    Note that in SAP CAL, in Advanced Mode you can change the VM size if more than one VM size is supported for the particular solution.

    Best regards,

    So if Cost Forecast mentions USD 5.29 per hour when Active USD 593.06 until Termination, does it mean that will be charged a net total of 593.06 USD or will it 593.06 USD plus the hourly rate?

    Thank You

    So if Cost Forecast mentions USD 5.29 per hour when Active USD 593.06 until Termination, does it mean the total cost I will incur will be USD 593.06 ? or will it be USD 593.06 plus the hourly rate of USD 5.29?

    Hello,

    First of all please note that the numbers in SAP CAL are just a forecast based on the publicly available Azure prices, i.e. we can't commit that Microsoft will bill the same amount at the end. Also it could be that you have agreed other prices with Microsoft.

    USD 593.06 until Termination means what you'd pay to Microsoft in total for that instance according to configured schedule and termination date.

    Best regards,

    Dear Stanimir,

    Thank You for your responses.

    Does this mean that 593.06 USD is the approx net total for the usage including the hourly Active usage rates?

    Thank You
