PAYG is one of the offerings that allows our customer to run ALL MIKE Powered by DHI products on Microsoft's Cloud platform Azure. Even if you don't have a license, you can easily start a simulation by purchasing a 'pre-configured' machine that includes the necessary license.  

The price consists of two items:  Hardware and Licensing. The hardware price varies depending on which machine you choose and how long the machine is running. The Azure platform is equipped with the most advanced hardware within your local region to make sure the simulation runs with no limitation. The licensing price is fixed as $12, $8 and $5USD/hour for MIKE Zero, MIKE+ and FEFLOW respectively.

PAYG is also introduced as an ideal substitute for MIKE 'SaaS' (Software as a Service). It continues the legacy of SaaS with even more reduced administration and even better user experience. Instead of setting up your own virtual machine simply use our offering on Azure.

PAYG is available in our latest software version. The billing will be sent directly to the customer by Microsoft on a monthly basis.
