Most cloud computing charges are based on metered usage, so developing a strategy to minimize monthly cloud computing charges is paramount. In this course, explore a variety of ways in which cloud computing costs can be reduced, such as by using reserved instances or virtual machine auto-shutdown. Next, you will configure virtual machine reserved instances and analyze monthly cloud computing charges in the portal. Then, add key and value pairs, or tags, to Azure resources using the Azure portal, the CLI, and PowerShell. Finally, you will create an Azure cost budget using the Azure pricing calculator and the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator. This course can be used to prepare for exam AZ-900, Microsoft Azure Fundamentals.
