What are Azure Reserved VM Instances (RIs)?
Azure Reserved VM Instances are Virtual Machines which have been reserved on Microsoft Azure’s Public IaaS cloud for dedicated use on a one-year or three-year basis.
Azure RIs cost 72% less than standard on-demand, pay-per-use Azure VM instances and they provide you with the best price and flexibility in return for a commitment and upfront payment.

Reserve your instances for 1 or 3 years with a single up front payment or on a monthly basis
