View Monthly vs. Upfront Microsoft Azure Reserved Instances

You can pay for Microsoft Azure Reserved Instances (RI) either up front (pay the full amount) or on a monthly basis.

For RIs paid monthly, the total cost of the reservation is divided evenly over each month of the RI term (1 or 3 years). The total cost of upfront and monthly reservations is the same, and you don't pay any extra fees when you choose to pay monthly. When you renew a reservation, you can change the billing frequency from upfront to monthly.

Within Optima’s Reserved Instances, you can view these monthly vs. upfront RIs in the Microsoft Azure tab. For details, see View Upfront vs. Monthly Microsoft Azure Reserved Instances.
