Windows Azure Platform Offer Changes

We also announced several offer changes today, including:

  • The extension of the expiration date and increases to the amount of free
    storage, storage transactions and data transfers in the Windows Azure
    Introductory Special offer. This promotional offer now includes 750 hours of
    extra-small instances and 25 hours of small instances of the Windows Azure
    service, 20GB of storage, 50K of storage transactions, and 40GB of data
    transfers provided each month at no charge until September 30, 2011. More
    information can be found here.

    • An existing customer who signed up for the original Windows Azure
      Introductory Special offer will get a free upgrade as of today. An existing
      customer who signed up for a different offer (other than the Windows Azure
      Introductory Special) would need to sign up for the updated Windows Azure
      Introductory Special Offer separately.
  • MSDN Ultimate and Premium subscribers will benefit from increased compute,
    storage and bandwidth benefits for Windows Azure. More information can be found

    extra-small instances and 25 hours of small instances of the Windows Azure
    service, 20GB of storage and 50GB of data transfers provided each month at no
