Is it charged only when the Azure virtual machine is powered on? Or does the money still be used when the power is off?

    An Azure VM is charged if the VM is running. If the Azure VM is deallocated you are not charged for the compute costs.
    But every VM is associated to at least one disk (OS Disk). The disk storage is charged "24hours/7days" because the storage is allocated all the time, even if the VM itself is not running.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi @Sowmya ,

    depending on the type of Azure subscription you can check the costs in the Azure Portal:

    Azure Portal -> Subscriptions -> Select the subscription -> Cost Analysis

    You can choose between different filters for the time period and you can select Cost by resource.
