There Are Now 730 Hours In An Azure Month

It was only back in November that we noticed, at work, that the average Azure month had shrunk to 732 hours, the average length of a month in a leap year.

It appears that Azure has moved a little closer to the sun, because the average Azure month has just shrunk to 730 hours.

Where does 730 come from? Let’s do the math:

  1. 730 hours * 12 months = 8760 hours in a year.
  2. 8760 hours / 24 hours = 365 days in a year.

So 730 hours in an average Azure month is based on a year of 365 days. And how said pricing the cloud was hard?

If you found this information useful, then imagine what 2 days of training might mean to you. I’m delivering a 2-day course in Amsterdam on April 19-20, teaching newbies and experienced Azure admins about Azure Infrastructure. There’ll be lots of in-depth information, covering the foundations, best practices, troubleshooting, and advanced configurations. You can learn more here.
