Steps to Reduce the Azure Cost

In this blog, we will share few Steps to Reduce the Azure Cost.

 

AZURE REGION SELECTION

  • Each region will have their own set of capabilities and services.
  • We can move our resources to a less expensive azure region but we need to make sure the end-user should not face the latency issues.
  • We can use the Azure latency test site www.azurespeed.com to understand network performance per region.

 

RIGHT SIZE FOR VMs

  • We need to segregate between production and development/test environment VMs.
  • Development and test environment VMs does not require high resources as production VMs.
  • While creating new VM’s azure shoes the High-performance VM as default.

RUNNING SERVICE AS A SERVICE

  • To run an application on cloud, we need to create a VM and take care of computing, storage and licensing.
  • Also, It required regular patching and update which is an additional headache for the administrator.
  • To reduce these issues, We can use the Azure App service to launch our web application as a service.
  • They are providing various types of app services such as web application with SQL.

Steps to Reduce the Azure Cost

 

  • We need to verify our company security requirements before moving our application database into the cloud.
  • Because these databases are on a shared resource, any misconfiguration will lead to database exploit.

 

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

  • We need to add our azure resources into a Resource group to control the Azure costs.
  • The resource group will have VM, storage, and other resources into a unit.

Steps to Reduce the Azure Cost

  • We can easily remove the resource group when its no longer required.
  • It avoids the housekeeping problem as an unused resource will affect our azure billing.
