Take a deep dive on Azure Cost Management and Billing, a free tool that helps you set budget accountability and find optimizations to keep Cloud cost down. Whether you are managing your Cloud expenditure, want to ensure a specific workload or project stays within budget, or want to identify optimizations, Azure Cost Management can help. And Cost Management comes free with your Azure subscription, so there’s no excuse not to use it.
Antonio Ortoll, Product Manager for Microsoft Azure, joins Jeremy Chapman to help you understand the costs of everything running in your environment and show you how Azure Cost Management and Billing solves for:
Visibility into the workloads and related resources that are driving spend. See spending patterns or even detect specific anomalies in spend.
The ability to track spend against budget so you can drive accountability and charge costs back to individual teams or departments.
Identify optimizations that can help you to save money through dynamic recommendations available through Azure Advisor, which is integrated with Azure Cost Management.
