Azure - Pilot Pricing
Azure - Pricing
A final pricing model for Azure is currently under development. Pilot participants will be charged Azure retail for Azure resources consumed during the pilot. Please note that the pilot pricing model may change in a future Azure pricing model. Data will be collected on this surcharge and the actual costs to campus over the next fiscal year. As a result, the surcharge may be increased or decreased in the future based on the actual costs of providing Azure to campus.
Insight, the campus reseller for Azure, discounts Azure retail pricing ~15% as part of the Internet2 agreement with Microsoft. UW-Madison Public Cloud applies a 15% overhead surcharge to the Insight rate to recover a portion of its costs. The net cost to campus customers will be equivalent to Microsoft's published rates for Azure.
Customers are responsible for ensuring that any grant funds used to pay for Azure is done in accordance with RSP (https://rsp.wisc.edu) policy and federal requirements (2 CFR 200 Subpart E). Basic guidance can be found at https://www.rsp.wisc.edu/awardmgt/explanation_costs.html. It is recommended that all customers who wish to use a grant to pay for Azure contact RSP for guidance.
