With: Michael Whitehouse

Language: English



In this talk/presentation, we will delve into various Azure cost-reduction methods that can be applied to core system services such as virtual machines, SQL databases, and storage accounts. Azure offers a wealth of powerful tools that can help you optimize and manage your cloud infrastructure more efficiently, but it can be challenging to navigate them all.

We will start by discussing different approaches to reducing costs for virtual machines, including optimizing VM sizes, managing VM uptime, and leveraging reserved instances. We will also explore strategies for reducing costs associated with SQL databases, including using serverless computing, optimizing storage, and implementing elastic pools.

Furthermore, we will cover cost-saving tactics for storage accounts, including leveraging lifecycle management policies and using cool/hot storage tiers. These techniques can help you optimize storage costs, while maintaining data accessibility and durability.

Finally, we will discuss how large language models like ChatGPT can be utilized to enhance the performance of system administrators by providing support with writing scripts and searching documentation. ChatGPT can assist with finding solutions to common problems and automating repetitive tasks, leading to more efficient and cost-effective management of Azure services.

Key take-aways:
Attendees of this presentation will gain valuable insights into cost reduction methods that can be applied to core Azure system services, along with actionable steps they can take to optimize their cloud infrastructure. They will also learn how ChatGPT can be utilized to enhance their workflow and boost overall system administration performance.
