Some words to the infrastructure hosted in Azure and the generated costs (based on azure calculator):
- Web App: Basic Tier; B1 (1 Core(s), 1.75 GB RAM, 10 GB Storage) 54$/Month
- Redis: C0, Basic Tier, 1 instance(s) 16$/Month
- SQL: S0, Single Database: 10 DTUs, 250 GB 14$/Month
… that means that someone has to pay ~1'000$/year or 1 Cent per downloaded Software... at the moment it's someone else that pays the bill, but if you are interested to become an official sponsor, let me know...
