How Azure Works

  • Overview

Azure VM Billing

  • Azure Will Charge for the
    • VM if the physical server has the resources attached to it. i.e. if you deallocate the vm (freeing server resources) then no charges for vm
    • If your perform os shutdown from the vm, resources will not be deallocated so you will be still paying the hourly charges.
    • A disk also gets attached to the virtual machine. In Azure you have two types of disks
      • disks: They get allocated from a different physical host in the same datacenter. For this charges will continue until you delete the disk
      • tempdisk: They get allocated from the same phyiscal host where the vm is allocated (for this no charges)
