Hi

A Pay-As-You-Go subscription. What are my options to have 9 simultaneous RDP connections to server? I need advice for both the technical and the financial options.

The customer has Limited budget. The Site-to-Site VPN is already configured.

You'll need to deploy Remote Desktop Services if you want more than 2 connections at any given time. Here's a good step-by-step guide with screenshots to get you started: http://blogs.technet.com/b/tommypatterson/archive/2014/10/14/installing-and-configuring-remote-desktop-services-on-windows-server-2012-r2-in-microsoft-azure.aspx

Thanks,

Can't find prices for required licenses. It seems that I need:
2 pcs Win 2012 Servers
9 pcs CALs for RDPs (Remote Desktop Services). How much should theese aproxmately cost?

For the Windows 2012 servers, use the Azure Pricing Calculator found here: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/?scenario=virtual-machines

You'll need to speak to your local Microsoft rep for the RDS CALs as Microsoft don't have a Pay-as-you-go option there.

Have a read of this article if you need some more information on how the licensing works in Azure: http://blogs.technet.com/b/uspartner_ts2team/archive/2014/08/31/microsoft-azure-vms-often-include-licensing-built-right-in-but-not-everything.aspx

Thanks

In the end we skipped Azure due to performance problems. Installed the whole system to our own VMware infrastructure.
