Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It's a very expensive machine and I would like for them to improve the price. There are smaller sized competitors who offer cheaper prices.
The pricing is very competitive.
The cost-benefit equation for Azure is very good, particularly for small applications. However, Microsoft should do much, much more to improve how costs are communicated and how to forecast them. The Azure Pricing Calculator is not useful.
Pricing is very difficult to guesstimate. With so many a la carte options and individual pricing it can be a hassle to understand.
If you are not aware of costs, pricing, etc., you can end up with a hefty bill. However, I found that the Azure price calculator is a valuable tool to use before starting to deploy VMs in Azure. This tool will give you an overview of the costs you should expect on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.
