Azure Active Directory Domain Services generally available.
Now generally available, Azure Active Directory Domain Services general availability pricing will begin on 1st December 2016.
The original pricing model, proposed during public preview, included three prices based on number of directory objects: 0-5,000, 5,000-25,000, and 25,000-100,000. Now Microsoft are combining the first two tiers into a single price point for all directories with under 25,000 objects and lowering the price by 25 percent.
- If your directory size is under 25,000 objects, you will continue to see usage listed against “S2 Domain Services Hours” on your invoice until 1st December 2016. After that, it will be renamed “S1 Domain Services Hours.”
- If your directory size is between 25,000 and 100,000 objects, you will see usage listed against “S3 Domain Services Hours” on your invoice until 1st December 2016, after which it will be renamed “S2 Domain Services Hours.”
