Windows Azure Free Trial
« on: November 14, 2013, 12:51:07 AM »

Just thought I'd post this as I've just started using it and it's been ok so far.

$200 free trial up to 20 cores :)

I'm using this as well. You get 20 free cores for 1 month. I get about 210 coll/min from all the cores. You'll need a credit card to setup the free trial.

I think it's up to one month or $200 which ever comes first :)

I roughly worked out, that using all 20 cores you will get about 120 hours for free, my math may be out slightly though?

If you have an MSDN subscription you get a $200 per month allowance included. Just found that out :)

Cool will have to check that out. I wonder if it stacks on top of the free trial? so $400 for first month

It made me pick one of the two options. The MSDN option doesn't require a credit a card.

I'm not 100% sure, but people on the ypool chatbox seemed to think they would just cancel your subscription once the $200 ran out and wait for you to upgrade

I will be keeping an eye on it anyway just to make sure it does cancel as they have my CC details.

I can only see 8 cores option. But the dashboard says I am using 8 of 20 cores. Will it auto boost to 20 cores? Or I chose the wrong one?

Can't see any options to cancel, it just says 28 days/$200 left on the free subscription and then an option to upgrade to a full subscription.

It does say on the main page no strings, just a free trial.

You need to set up more than 1 virtual machine either 5 x 4 core or 2 x 8 and 1 x 4

click the virtual machine option and then press the + at the bottom of the dashboard, it takes a few minutes to get running.

It automatically cancels, I ran out of my free trial after about 1.5 weeks.

Thanks for the confirmation.

I think the time period depends on what VM you are using. Windows is more expensive then Linux so obviously less time.
