Buying SQL Azure for 3rd party RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, Probably a very simple question.

    I have a 3rd party i am doing some programming for and we have decided to use SQL Azure.

    Do they need to buy the license and set up the subscription or is there a way for me to do it for them? They are non technical

    Thanks Scott

  •  I would recommend that you help them get the subscription set up. They need to own it.

  • Hello.

    I think it will be better if they will buy the license, not you. And yes - for using Azure you should buy the license or you can try free 30-days trial if you want to "roll around" Azure platform.

  • Hi,

    Adding to Alexander's reply, the free trial includes 1GB web edition SQL Azure database. For details, please visit, https://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/ 

    Else, for a full subscription, the details could be found at: https://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/home/tour/sql-azure/

    Based on your requirements you can choose either of the above mentioned two options.

    I hope it helps!!
