Few beginner questions

Hi There,

 

 I am very new with power apps and CDS. I have a few questions if someone can please help me.

 

1- I use  Dynamics CRM Sales/CE for my customers. Most customers are in different verticals so I add entities for them besides the base CRM functionality and Account/Contact. 

 

2- My assumption is that instead of buying the Out of the box, I can subscribe to Power Apps- CDS and built XRM applications here instead? If I am correct in my assumption will the cost be $10 for regular users and $40 for the admin user?

 

3- IF the above scenario is correct, how can I migrate or switch my existing CRM online users to CDS? Do I need to migrate them to a CDS tenant?

 

4- How much storage is allowed in CDS for Dynamics users? What is the extra charge per GB? 

 

Thanks so much in advance.

Hi @AppBuilder ,

 

If you mean that you want to replace Dynamics 365 instance with CDS instance, then please understand that they are indeed different. Although Dynamics 365 applications, such as Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer Service or Dynamics 365 Talent, also use the Common Data Service to store and secure data used by the applications. This enables you to build apps using PowerApps and the Common Data Service directly against your core business data already used within Dynamics 365 without the need for integration.

For PowerApps licensing guide, please see the details here:
