Azure Regions and Pricing

Koen Verbeeck has a public service announcement:

Today I was having a nice discussion with some colleagues about Fabric and pricing/licensing came up. I mentioned an F2 is only around €250 a month, but a colleague said “no no, it’s over €300”.

There can be significant differences in prices for services based on region, not just for Microsoft Fabric, but also for a variety of services. This will depend on how new the hardware is, how much demand there is in the region, and a few other factors. Cloud Price does a good job of keeping track of VM pricing by region, and even tells you the cheapest region for each class of VM. For other services, you may have to trawl through Azure APIs and pricing pages to get the best deal.
