Windows Azure MSDN Subscription 750 hours

Hello,

I'm using windows azure from MS as a complement for MSDN subscribers. But I'm reading a lot these days that they are being charged for the extra hours.

 Can you please explain 750 hours ? I'm running one service ( Web Application) uploaded and deployed.

How do I calucate that ?

Thanks.

Since you about the basics, I thought you didn't had it. Ok, No probs.

>> Think of "compute" as an instance of your application running in the cloud. So with 750 hours per month, you can keep a single instance running non-stop all month long. Or run 2 compute instances for two weeks a month. Or 4 for a week apiece.

As it says, Using Windows Azure you are going to host your web Services on some server.
And to do so, they are providing some kind of hosting durations as 750 hours / month which you can use it as a single standalone instance for whole month non-stop or with two instances or more of your choice..

Hope you know the basic details about Windows Azure internet-scale Cloud Computing.

>>  Can you please explain 750 hours ?

If you are willing to Subscribe to Windows Azure or if you are an MSDN Subscriber(already) then you can take the 8 month introductory offer with 750 hours / month ie., running 24/7 for the first 8 months.

As you know, a Month comprises of 24 * 30/31 days = 720 /744 hours and hence you can obtain uninterrupted web hosting for this first 8 month introductory period.

If you are going to subscribe later, then you can have only use a max of 250 hrs /month.
And hope this gives you some more info:

Instances refer to a single standalone hosting in a server..
As a single server can have several hostings present, it is referred to as instances.

And I haven't did it personally but few of my friends have deployed and have some information as a word of mouth..
And regret for the delay as I am on vacation for a few days..
