before we look at the cost management and optimization in Azure. Let's take a look at the different ways you can put your national service is
there are three ways you can purchase. Actual service is
the standard way to purchase actuaries through the actual website. It is called Web Direct, or you can also hear it US pay as you go
wet. Direct customers pay. Retail prices for service is in are built on a monthly basis.
If you're on enterprise and plant to deploy many applications on National, you can sign on enterprise agreement with Microsoft.
In this agreement, you commit to certain spending career and prepaid amount upfront for the whole year.
Although this can be significantly investment, you can benefit from the customized pricing that casual offers and purchase service is a significant discount.
You can purchase enterprise agreements from authorized distribution partners.
One last way to purchase actual service is is through a cloud solution provider.
Those are Microsoft partners who can sell Asher and other Microsoft products, and service is
quite often those are bundled with additional service is from the partner like, for example, managed service is
it doesn't matter how you purchase Asher the way the billing system is the same
When you provisionally resource on Asher, the platform creates that so called usage meters for the resource.
Each meter tracks particular kind of usage. For example, for actual read axes globally distributed storage block,
you may have the following meters.
Hot R A G E. R s data stored that keeps track of the date. A stork in the block
Hot G A. G s white right operations that keep track of the rites Done. Tow the blob
Geo replication V to data transferred, keeps track of the data transfer during replication and there is a meter for all other operations.
In addition, you may also have data transfer out. If you read data from this block outside Asher
at the end of the billing cycle, the user is charged to your subscription payment. Metal in the meters are reset.
You can don't want your usage at any time from the azure Porto.
The most important thing to remember is that you are charged based on usage.
If you have three sources that you don't need, you should terminate them.
But be careful because there is a difference between stopping resource is and terminating them. For example, if you stop of'em, you will not be charged for the computer hours, but you're stealing cur charges for the storage disks.
They're several factors affecting the cost of your service is
different. Resource types have different cost, as well as different usage meters supplied.
The way you purchase resource is also impact the cost. As we mentioned the enterprise agreements, prices can have discounts, and the price differs from the Web direct in the CSP prices. Also, if you purchased third party products from our shield marketplace,
you will be paying not only for our show Resource is but also licensing or subscription fees for the third party applications.
Location of the resource is also play. Throw in the pricing.
Different locations have different infrastructure costs, like electricity, cooling and local taxes that can impact the resource pricing.
Last but not least, Bonwit pricing depends on the so called azure billing zones.
Inbound data transfer, also called ingress, is normally free, but album data transfer, also called egress, is judged according to the billing zone.
The building's owner is a grouping of partial regions for billing purposes.
Here is the grouping actually uses
for most zones, the 1st 5 gigabytes egress. Data is free.
Now you know how you can purchase Asher and how the building is done.
