Real Scenario: Manage your Azure expenses like magic

Though Azure Advisor does most of the magic and catches the huge fishes, someone must hunt for the small yet valuable fishes. Azure Advisors are unable to recommend optimization since they are unable to distinguish the resources and tiers used by Developers and Q.A.

Today, I’m going to talk about an underutilized resource called ‘Azure Cache for Redis,’ which caught my eye recently. The maximum resource utilization from January to April 2021 is 2%. This resource is presently on the Premium 6 GB plan, which costs 527.59 CAD per month or $6,331.08 annually.

 If the team could move to Standard C1 (1 GB Cache Replication) for 131.42 CAD per month, with a similar SLA (99.9%), and save 4622.62 (more than 70%) annually for just one resource at South Central.

My suggestion to the client

Suggested Tier Change :

Changing tier to Standard C1 (1 GB Cache Replication) for 131.42 CAD per month, with a similar SLA (99.9%), and save 4622.62 (more than 70%) annually for just one resource at South Central makes my client happy 🙂
