Recently setup a trial with azure and we love it so we want to use our own images. We have our a windows software subscription and we already have existing virtual machines, from what I have read converted from vmware and they can be uploaded to azure?

My second question, If I look in the billing section I see

Compute Hours - US Central

100.4 <-Windows 2012 price per month, if we have our own operating systems or images does the billing per month change any or is it the same?

Ideally what you need to do is  generalize (sysprep with generalize+ oobe+shutdown options) export the image of your VM as a VHD file format, and upload that to azure storage in the region in which you want to create a compute machine. For SLA reasons it is suggested that you run at least two of the machine in azure load balanced.. there are many different ways to do that including VM's with load balancer, or VM scale sets.

Pricing will depend on the type of compute and size of the machines in which you are using as well as the OS you are using. Difference in OS is whether you are running windows or Linux, or R server, etc- however I would like to note that through license mobility if you have SA you can "bring-your-own-license" for all Virtual Machines supported server products except Windows Server.

Here is one such tutorial on how to upload and use your own images.
