Many opportunities exist for cost savings in a typical deployment on Microsoft Azure. When moving existing infrastructure to the cloud, many optimizations are missed simply because people are unaware of the options that are available to them such as automatic or timed based scaling. Additionally, as requirements change over time and new items are created, deleted, or moved, additional waste presents itself as things are not always cleaned up and monitored appropriately. Lastly, an understanding of your current utilization of hardware is important to ensure you are not over deploying and overpaying.
