Now that you know how to purchase eyes your services, let's see how you can estimate your expenses in azure.
00:06
To do that, I'll switch to my browser and show you the azure pricing calculator that you can use to estimate your costs.
00:13
This is the azure pricing calculator. It is a free Web based tool that allows you to select azure services, modify different options and get a pricing estimate.
00:26
As you can see, there is a brow selection for all the services that, as your has,
00:34
you can also search the services in the search box.
00:39
You'll receive the estimates at the bottom.
00:43
You can also have some example scenarios. You can see saved estimates. We'll talk about that a little later.
00:51
You can also see frequently asked questions.
00:55
Let's try to estimate a solution of our own.
00:58
Let's say that our solution will have application. Gateway.
01:03
We'll find application gateway here
01:06
and now We've added application Gateway.
01:08
The next thing we'll do is add Apple Azure APP service.
01:19
We will also add Azure SQL database,
01:27
and we've now added one of each of the products.
01:33
Certain information is already pre populated by azure. In the calculator,
01:38
you can see the estimate right now is about $1500.
01:42
The reason for that is that the SQL databases pre populated with data
01:46
What we want to do now is go and modify these settings in order to match our environment.
01:53
We assume that we'll have one application gateway,
01:57
the data process. Let's say it will be one terabyte per month. We'll use Zone one, which is North America and Europe.
02:14
Let's say we'll have another one terabyte for that.
02:17
Next, we'll have the APP service.
02:21
Let's say the region will be us West. We'll choose the smallest instance
02:28
and we'll have a single instance for 730 hours, which is the amount of hours in the month
02:35
that will be our price for the APP service.
02:38
Last is the SQL Database, which right now is the most expensive one
02:45
will change the region to us West.
02:46
Let's make sure that all regions are actually the same
02:53
will change this one also to West us,
03:01
and now we will change some of the SQL parameters as well. In order to make it a little bit cheaper,
03:09
Microsoft automatically proposes managed instance because this is their commanded setting for SQL servers.
03:16
If you need to use it for some testing purposes, you can just change it to a single database
03:23
instead of using a provision one, you can say serverless.
03:27
As you can see, the price goes significantly down.
03:30
Let's see the other parameters here
03:35
for the SQL Server list. You can change the number, of course. Let's say, four.
03:46
You can add more storage or add backup storage, and so on.
03:53
At the end, you can see your estimate, which will be about $175 or $176 per month.
04:01
You can play more with the settings of your estimate, and you can define your own scenarios. Of course,
04:09
once I've done with my settings, I can save this.
04:11
If I'm logged into my account, this estimate will be saved.
04:16
That can save it, and I can also export it.
04:21
If I click on the export button, it'll be exported either in CSP format or Excel format.
04:30
I can share this using my email, or I can click on share and get a link to the estimate that I can copy and share with everybody who's interested in it.
04:40
Now you know how you can use the as your pricing calculator to estimate your costs in Azure
