Optimize Azure Costs eBook
In this E-book, we summarize some of the steps you can take to help you get a better handle of your Azure costs, and share practical tips to help you optimize these costs.
Review Your License or Payment Agreement
It can be confusing to understand Microsoft licenses due to the number of choices they offer. In the case of Azure, however, the payment options are not that complex; you can simply prepay and get a reasonable discount.
Track Monthly Usage
The Azure Portal provides a monitoring hub that allows you to know how much you’re spending and on which workload or application, enabling you to analyze and manage your Azure billings.
Access Azure Recommendations
Another tool that comes free with your Azure portal is Azure Advisor. This provides you with personalized recommendations you can follow to achieve the best practices to optimize your deployments.
Use Test Environments
If your IT department constantly needs to develop apps, then you are likely to need a test environment.
Ask your CSP to Set a Budget
Once you have your licensing sorted with a Microsoft CSP like Professional Advantage, you can be more proactive with your monthly spend and ask them to set up a budget in the Partner Centre Portal.
It’s never been easier to get started.
With Azure at your fingertips, you can bridge your current server technology to the cloud – and unlock new possibilities that drive your business forward.
