Azure provides the ability to easily and quickly spin up VMs with the related resources including disks, IPs and network security groups. However, deleting a VM doesn’t necessarily remove all the related resources leaving behind resources that continue to consume subscription dollars.
The Voleer Azure VM & Disk Cost Visualizer extracts data across Azure subscriptions, providing a dashboard view of resources that may be not utilized but still costing money, and detailed information on resources to help identify if such resources can be removed.
How it works
This template retrieves data across Azure subscription(s) to determine potential resource optimizations such as
