Microsoft Extends 5-Year RI Offer for AVS

Friday, May 17, 2024

Microsoft is actively responding to the needs of Azure Virtual Server (AVS) customers considering recent developments with Broadcom by extending a strategic promotion. This extension not only continues the previous 5-year Reserved Instance (RI) offer but also introduces a new 20% discount on 1-year RIs.

Navigating Broadcom’s Changes

The acquisition of VMware by Broadcom has led to significant shifts in licensing models and partner programs, with many customers facing unexpected price hikes. These changes have made headlines as businesses report increases in costs by as much as 15 times their previous rates. In response, companies are seeking ways to reduce their dependency on Broadcom products, with Microsoft offering viable, cost-effective alternatives through AVS.

Extended 5-Year RI Offer

Azure VMware Solution empowers organisations to migrate and extend their on-premises VMware workloads to Azure, ensuring operational continuity with familiar VMware technologies. Initially set to conclude in June 2024, the extended RI offer now runs until the end of December 2024, granting businesses extra time to benefit from predictable pricing in their cloud migration journey.

New 1-Year RI Promotion

Recognising the need for greater flexibility in shorter terms, Microsoft introduces a new promotional 20% discount on 1-year RIs. This is particularly beneficial for customers who are recalibrating their long-term software investment strategies in response to market changes.

Microsoft's Commitment

As the landscape evolves, Microsoft and its partners remain committed to supporting businesses through these transitions. The extensions and new offers reflect our commitment to providing reliable and economically feasible solutions.
