Welcome to “Managing Azure Costs”. I’m Guy Hummel, and I’m a certified Azure Solutions Architect.
In this course, I’ll start by showing you how to use the Total Cost of Ownership Calculator. Then I’ll explain Azure subscription and purchasing options. Next, I’ll show you the Pricing Calculator. Then I’ll cover some of the most important ways to reduce costs. Finally, I’ll give you an overview of Azure Cost Management.
To get the most from this course, you should already have some basic knowledge of Azure. If you don’t have any experience with Azure, then you can take our “Overview of Azure Services” course.
