  2. Azure Service Fabric Mesh – A fully managed microservices platform (In Preview) .
  3. Azure Service Fabric – Available as free download for windows to create clusters on-premises.

What is the pricing of Azure Service Fabric?

No upfront cost, No termination fees, Per-Second billing. There is no charge for the service offered by Service Fabric itself when clusters are deployed using any standard size Windows Server or Linux Virtual Machines. Charges are applied towards the use of Compute Instances, Storage, Networking Resources etc. that are selected during the creation of a Service Fabric Cluster.
