Understanding Azure cost analysis

Dharmendra Ahirwar 0 Reputation points

I upgraded my Azure subscription to pay-as-you-go after creating a free account for learning purposes. Although I believe that certain services are free for 12 months with a usage limit, I see charges in the cost analysis for default services that were created with a virtual machine. Can someone explain why I'm being charged and how cost analysis works in Azure?

    Hi @Dharmendra Ahirwar ,

    to answer the question why you are charged for Azure services the best option might be to open a support case with Microsoft Azure support for clarification.

    Azure Billing and Subscription support is offered by Microsoft by no cost and it's for free.

    Source: Azure Support plans

    Without seeing/having the exact facts of your Azure billing/costs it's almost impossible to help with this question in Q&A.
