Progressive cost for Azure search
There is currently only two plans for Azure Search. Free 15,000 documents and Standard 15M documents at 300$/month. Need a more progressive pricing model like all other products. This is hard to justify when your search engine cost more then the hosting and storage...
Thank you for your feedback. Please take a look at the Basic SKU: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/search/
We hope this meets your financial requirements.
