How to determine my monthly bill

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am using the free trail of the windows azure.

    I have loaded 1 site, 1 cloud service, 1 database and 1 storage.

    Is it possible for me to determine my usage and how much i would have been billed if I wasn't using a free pass.

    I am new on the platform and a help on how i can determine this for my web application would be much helpful.

    Thank you

  • If you watch the MOCP portal, you'll be able to view your usage over the next few days weeks. Then its just a matter of adding the rates in.

    I also as a general rule recommend that anyone using the platform get a REALLY good handle on costs/pricing before they deploy something. Web Sites are 10 free (for now), the cloud service is approximately $0.12/hr per core (so it depends on the number of instances and their sizes), and the storage account is how much data you have stored and how often its accessed. Plus there's bandwidth for anything that's sent out of the datacenter (this includes sending html/images/css/etc... back to anyone visiting your web site).
