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