Valuable lesson learned about Azure

13 Sep

For the last two months I have been working on a Silverlight project hosted on an Azure platform. I have had my challenges with Azure but all things considered I think it is a really good platform. It’s without doubt that I can say my next Silverlight application will be based on the Azure platform as well.

But – there’s one thing that hit me pretty hard. The bill. For the last month I got a bill for 3300 computing hours!!!Windows azure got both a Production and a Staging environment and apparently (and fair enough) I pay for every hour for both environments and for every site I have active. Since then I have suspended all of my Staging environments when not needed.

    Just to inform you For some strange and not completely undestandable reason. Azure also charges compute hours for suspended sites…
