This 9-video course explores several ways to manage Azure cloud computing costs for an organization while preparing learners for the AZ-300: Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies certification exam. First, you will examine several ways to reduce unnecessary cloud computing charges, including how to perform a cost analysis. You will learn how to enable virtual machine (VM) auto-shutdown, to prevent unneeded resources from continuing to run. Next, you will learn how to use resource tagging to add extra information to Azure resources, and for billing management purposes. This course explores the benefits of SLAs (service level agreements) when purchasing VM computing power. You will learn how to use Azure reserved instances to save money on purchasing long-term computing services. Finally, you will learn how to configure an Azure budget, and how to use the Azure Pricing Calculator to estimate monthly costs, and how to use cost analysis to monitor and analyze incurred charges, and for planning future budgets.
