Hi there, I am struggling to understand how pricing works for the intelligent recommendation service in Azure. Is it always based on usage, or can I reserve capacity upfront for a more predictable monthly price? If pricing is usage-based, where can I find an example of how the price is calculated? Also, I noticed that multiple models are supported with the premium option. Does this mean that the model for the standard option is offline while training?

    Hello @Juul Hobert Thank you for posting your question on the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer any questions you may have!

    Azure Intelligent Recommendations has two pricing tiers: Standard and Premium. The Standard tier is usage-based, meaning you pay for the number of recommendations generated by the service. On the other hand, the Premium tier offers reserved capacity, which allows you to pay upfront for a set amount of recommendations per month.

    Regarding the pricing for the Standard tier, the cost is based on the number of recommendations generated by the service. You can find an example of how the price is calculated on the [Azure Intelligent Recommendations pricing page] (https://azure.microsoft.com/pricing/details/cognitive-services/recommendations/).

    As for the Premium tier, you can reserve capacity upfront for a more predictable monthly price. This is a good option if you have a consistent workload and want to avoid unexpected charges. Regarding your question about the models, both the Standard and Premium tiers support online and offline models. The difference between the two tiers is that the Premium tier supports multiple models, while the Standard tier only supports one model.

    I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.
