This restricted offer provides certain qualified BizSpark members heavily discounted access to Windows Azure.
Microsoft provides qualifying members $60,000.00 as a credit towards a BizSpark member’s use of Windows Azure at the publicly-available Pay-As-You-Go rates on the Windows Azure website.
Microsoft will apply this credit at a different percentage for each year of the following two years, as follows:
Microsoft will apply the credit as a 100% discount on the Pay-As-You-Go Rates for Windows Azure during the first year up to the total amount of the credit stated above.
Should any credit remain unused after the first year, Microsoft will apply the credit as a 50% discount on the Pay-As-You-Go Rates for Windows Azure during the second year up to the total amount of the credit stated above.
Member will forfeit any unused portion of the credit at the end of the two year term.
When member exhausts the credit, member will be responsible for the cost of the Windows Azure offering at the then-current published price. Should member elect to terminate its participation in the Windows Azure for BizSpark Special Offer, member will be subsequently responsible for its usage at standard Pay-As-You-Go rates.
Upon the earlier of (a) member’s exhaustion of the credit, or (b) the conclusion of the two-year term, Microsoft may offer to Startup a discounted opportunity to purchase additional Windows Azure offerings.
You will be notified at least 30 days in advance of any changes to the Pay-As-You-Go rates.
New services may be added periodically to the Windows Azure platform. We will notify you in advance of these new services and any fees that might be charged for using them. However, you would only be charged if you elect to use the new services.
Any taxes which may result from receiving services at no charge are the sole responsibility of the recipient.
Credit or debit cards only, unless previously approved for invoice.

Cloud Services and Virtual Machines
The standard quota is 20 concurrent Standard Small (A1) compute instances or an equivalent number of other types or sizes of compute instances as determined by using the compute instance quota conversion table below.

An object is an entry in the directory service, represented by its unique distinguished name. An example of an object is a user entry used for authentication purpose.
If you exceed the above quotas for a given month, you will still be responsible for charges that exceed the quotas. We also reserve the right to disable your account in any month that you exceed the quota, but we will make multiple attempts to contact you by e-mail before doing so. There are additional situations that may require us to disable a customer's account, including non-payment of fees. For further details, please refer to our Online Services Use Rights for the Windows Azure platform that is published on our legal page.
Service Level Agreements
We offer a set of robust service level agreements for each of the Windows Azure platform services. More details on each of our SLAs can be found on our SLA page. Service level agreements are not provided for services during preview.
All increases in usage levels of service resources (e.g. adding to the number of compute instances running, or increasing the amount of storage in use) are subject to the availability of these service resources. Any quota described in the Usage Quotas section is not a commitment that there will be sufficient resources available for you to reach the quota.
For any subscriptions of this offer that are not incurring charges and are inactive for over 90 days, we reserve the right to remove any compute resources including hosted service(s), virtual machines and websites. Please note that no data would be deleted and customers can redeploy at any time. We will also provide advance notice prior to removing any compute resources.
You can also avoid having your compute resources removed by doing either of the following every 90 days:
- Log into either the current management portal or the new preview portal
- Access your hosted service(s) via our Windows Azure APIs
