Azure TCO Calculator

The Azure TCO calculator allows customers to compare on-premises infrastructure costs to potential Azure costs and to estimate the savings they could realize by migrating their application workloads to Microsoft Azure. Let us know if you have any suggestions, ideas or feedback based on your experience using the TCO calculator.

  1. Compute type - SQL Server VMs

    When choosing compute of type 'SQL Server VMs' in the input, does it consider SQL Server licensing costs or is it just the servers, can you please clarify? What actually should we be choosing in inputs, to get a sense of savings on SQL Server if we move it to Azure.

    • Storage Options

      Hi

      I am trying to calculate our Infrastructure to switch over to Azure. Under Storage, I am only able to add 20 entries. Can this be extended as I need a lot more.

      • No output when using custom template for bulk input?

        When uploading an input file using the custom template when I click on calculate it spins for a while then nothing happens ie no output. I have tried on Edge, Chrome and IE11, all with the same result.

        • Compute Bulk Import Costs

          Do the [MAPS] bulk import costs include the storage associated with the imported VMs? (I note the disk sizes reported in the bulk output file)
          If not, perhaps you could allow bulk import into the storage field also; otherwise I have hundreds of individual lines to enter...

            No, the MAP import only supports completion of the Compute section. The Storage section in the TCO Calculator is an aggregate storage number across all your VMs. As a workaround, you could sum all of the disk sizes that are reported in the MAP file and enter that into the TCO Calculator.

          • the ability to enter storage size / IOPS for VMs

            currently it is not possible to enter the storage size / IOPS requirement for VMs

              This is a good request and we will evaluate. As you can tell, our model is driven by cores/memory requirements alone. Adding IOPS as another driving factor is something we’ll prioritize based on popularity/votes for this feature.

              Allow to upload the ARM template for resource group and then ask other attributes like CPU, bandwidth separately

              • Improve the diagnostics

                Saying “Input string was not in a correct format. Click here for help.” without at least indicating the row is very poor. Since there is no verbose mode it is impossible to troubleshoot. I know that the file format is correct because when I truncate the file to 1,3 and 5 rows of data it works fine. My file is attached.
