HOW TO extend MSDN Subscription Azure benefits while retaining production usage facility

Following a recent announcement, folks with a MSDN Subscription can get enhanced Azure benefits. However, the catch is that those Windows Azure MSDN benefits are intended for development and test purposes only. Usage within that Windows Azure MSDN subscription does not carry a financially-backed SLA.

However, if you want to continue using the older MSDN benefits subscription (which has less features and a higher per-compute rate - but does support production usage) you can go to your accounts page and opt-out of the new MSDN plan.  That will allow you to continue using your existing benefits for another 12 months.

But where is the "accounts page"? Either use this direct link to the Account page or click on your account name that's on the top right after you login to the Azure portal. Select View my Bill from the menu that slides down to be redirected to your Account page

You can then opt to have your subscription transition to the new MSDN benefit immediately or continue using your existing MSDN benefit offer until August 1st 2014


If you choose the later, you will see this message -
Thank you. We have received your request to stay on the existing MSDN benefit offer. You can continue to enjoy it through August, 2014.
