Frustrating costing of Microsoft cloud services

Last Modified: 2016-08-31

Recently I purchased Microsoft Office 365 licenses for users in locations abroad.
Since there is so many options in Office 365, there is no way for a newbe to know it all.

So, I contacted Microsoft and asked how much would I pay for Azure server, (is this the term?), to have my AD synced with the on Azure server and my files synced to OneDrive for users abroad to access.

They couldn't tell me.
As I read here, some points to a pricing calculator.
OK. Have you used it for Canada?

Could someone explain what would cost to have AD synchronization online with AD on premises, files about 1TB in total synchronized to one drive and accessed by 25 Office 365 users?
Those files are MS Office files, pdfs, SolidWorks files, MS Project files, pictures, movies, etc.

Or should I just go around the corner to a psychic and she would tell me more correct prices than experts?
I meant here Microsoft and their two partners.
Because it definitely looks like this business is done by some ghosts, in the cloud.
