Azure costs spinning out of control?

You are not alone. Many organizations are finding themselves spending way more than expected in Microsoft Azure. You can see the bill in the Portal’s Azure Cost Management, but working out how to get it back under control without affecting your services is much tougher.

This is where SquaredUp Azure Edition dashboards come in.
