Through our close partnership with Microsoft®, we are now able to provide Aiven services natively through the Microsoft® Azure Marketplace and provide easy access to all Aiven services especially for customers who are already familiar with the Azure ecosystem and help them to leverage their long term commitment to Microsoft Azure for Aiven services on the Azure platform.

What does Aiven being on Azure Marketplace mean for me?

By signing up to Aiven via the marketplace, you will get the same level of access to the Aiven control plane and services such as Aiven for Apache Kafka® and Aiven for PostgreSQL® as when signing up directly through Aiven.

The price is the same as when signing up directly via the Aiven website, and the payments are automatically managed through your Azure billing account.
If you are interested in a longer-term contract, For commitment discounts, contact Aiven sales directly for a private offer. If you have an existing Azure commitment, your Aiven service spend can count towards your commitment spend (for more information, contact your Microsoft contact person).

What is included in the price?

Similarly to all other Aiven customers, the basic level of support is automatically included in the price. Higher support tiers with better SLA and additional tooling and channels to contact Aiven support team are also available. For more information, see the Aiven pricing page.

The subscription does not include any monthly fees - everything is “pay as you go” and charged hourly. You can track your service spend in the Azure console and the prices of the services are shown also in the Aiven Console when you are creating them, before starting any then.

You can power down services and power them back up when needed. Everything works automatically behind the scenes.

Getting started

To sign up, go to the Aiven listing on the Azure marketplace and subscribe using your billing account and your Azure AD user account. You can then proceed to set up the subscription on the Aiven Console: sign up with your Azure AD user and confirm the subscription. You’ll be ready to start moving data in minutes!

Step 1. On the Aiven page on Azure Marketplace, click Get it now.


Step 2. Set up your subscription. You may have to sign in to Azure first. Select a plan, give your subscription a name, assign it to the resource group, assign tags, and anything else that is needed.


Step 3. After reviewing the options, click Subscribe. The subscription process starts - it may take a few minutes to complete.


Step 4. When the subscription is complete, you get a Thank you page. Click the Configure account now button to move over to Aiven for finalization.

Step 5. Sign up to the Aiven Console with your Microsoft credentials. (If you already have an existing Aiven account, take care not to use those credentials to sign in. You need the separate account from Azure Marketplace to continue.)
If you're subscribing via Azure Marketplace for the first time, you may need to verify your e-mail address. Check your e-mail and follow the instructions.


Step 6. Click Verify subscription.

Step 7. And you're finished! Click Log in to Aiven Console to continue to the creation of projects and services.


Tip: You may want to rename your account - the identifier provided by Azure Marketplace isn't very user-friendly.
