This is a really good representation of the Windows Azure Platform as it stands today.In Red: The Development Runtime - Compute Emulator - Storage EmulatorIs complemented by the Azure RuntimeThe Fabric (Compute Instances)Azure Storage ServicesMicrosoft’s goal is to bring parity between their current on-premise solutions, and the offerings available in the cloud.
One of the biggest things on most people’s mind is “How much is it going to cost me”?Windows Azure is an abstracted System which is Great because it allows us to be able to consume only what we need. This does however make it extremely difficult to understand how much it will cost to run your application on the platform.Being the nice guy that I am, I’m going to break it down for you.SQL Azure – Web and Business EditionsAppFabric – Service Bus, Access Control, Caching, Integration & Composite ApplicationsVirtual Network – Windows Azure Connect
As you saw in the overview, Data Transfer Costs span over Compute and Storage Services. This is would be the bandwidth that would be either provided as part of a hosting package or via your ISP if you’re hosting your applications in house.
To understand how to calculate Compute Resources you need to know a little bit more about the structure.Windows Azure Compute is divided into Roles depending on what functionality you require of your Application. An application can be comprised of a number of roles.
Instance Count = # of Instances of a single roleInstance Multiplier = everything is billed out at $0.12 per hour (basically comprised of multiple small instances to create a larger instance)
