Windows Azure CDN Pricing
The Azure CDN is priced in two tiers:
- $0.15 per GB for data from European and North American locations.
- $0.20 per GB for data from other locations.
In addition there is a flat charge of $0.01 per 10,000 transactions.
The CDN works by caching content at its 20 worldwide ‘edge’ locations, the first time that a file is requested at an edge location it must be transferred from Azure Storage and will thus incur Azure Storage costs in addition to the CDN pricing.
Azure CDN pricing is broadly comparable to Amazon’s competing CloudFront CDN, except that CloudFront prices transactions at $0.0075 per 10,000 and also offers discounts for larger data transfers (down to $0.03 for 1,000TB per month.
