Microsoft is reacting with short notice to the stable currency situation and adjusting the CHF prices as of 1.8.18. In particular, the following changes should be noted:
- The Azure price in CHF rise 9%
- The CHF price of the Microsoft Online Services (eg Office 365) products increase by 6%
- CHF SPLA (Microsoft Licenses on Cloud Infrastructures) will rise by 6%
What options are there?
Especially on Microsoft Azure you have the possibility to get up to 72% discount with the relatively new “Reserved Instances”. Reserved Instances are common Microsoft Azure VMs, but for a commitment to book them upfront for 1 or 3 years, you can get very high discounts on various instances. The payment is “upfront” instead of monthly “pay per use”.
Azure as well as Office 365 licenses can be rented directly from us at the same or cheaper price as from Microsoft. We will gladly advise you and help you.
