I was just wondering if Azure comes with significant discounts on volume usage, including CDN, outgoing bandwidth, compute instances, SQL Azure, and so on. I've recently read on this link http://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/offers/MS-AZR-0021P?currency-locale=en-us that Azure Storage per GB costs less as storage commitment increases. As far as I know, Amazon has a similar pricing formula on S3 and other cloud offerings like the ones I mentioned before.

Yes, you will get discounts. I would like to suggest you to check the blog post on http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazure/archive/2011/10/27/microsoft-lowers-storage-cost-for-blob-and-table-storage-in-windows-azure.aspx for more details.

Just to be clear, does Azure offer discounts on other things like CDN, bandwidth, compute instances, and so on? If so, can I get a link to a blog post that talks about reduced pricing for volume usage?
